This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Wait for the cache to catch up? – ChrisF Mar 31 '12 at 14:08
how much time it takes generally ? And flair under "CLEAN" theme shows something older than other themes – IT ppl Mar 31 '12 at 14:08
Don't know. Hours? Usually not more than a day. Though I do notice that one of the flairs has a different value to the rest which may be just timing, but could be something else... – ChrisF Mar 31 '12 at 14:10
thnks chris for adding image over here :) – IT ppl Mar 31 '12 at 14:11
24-36 hours, according to Jeff, @ChrisF. Also note that this counts since the flair was generated: if one theme is requested earlier than another, then themes can be out of sync too. – Arjan Mar 31 '12 at 14:38
I really think that this discussion should be opened again, since there seems to be some problems as you can see in my comment to Kevin's answer. – Masi Jun 15 '12 at 22:29
And this is not a duplicate to the other post. The bug is not in the update process, it is elsewhere, very probably in your data structures. – Masi Jun 15 '12 at 22:30

Caching, caching, caching. The answer is always caching.

It is not always caching! Please, see my Flair now, showing 275 points total, although it should be something like 11k. dl.dropbox.com/u/62073194/… Your system seems to have internal problems with search and data structures. – Masi Jun 15 '12 at 22:27
That's your Area 51 flair, where you do have exactly 275 points. Your SO flair shows 9K, your network flair 12K. – Shog9 Jun 16 '12 at 4:01
