Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When you browse a question on Stack Overflow, you have a whole bunch of related questions on the right.

For some reason, they are WAY WAY out of date (so for example clicking on one that says it has 0 answers, takes me to the question, which has been answered several times, voted up, and been marked as answered).

Any ideas why?

Example: This link says 0 answers:

List of related questions

yet it's been answered and marked as that when you open it.

Answer on a specific question

Shame I closed the one with multiple answers and upvotes ...

Can you show an example? – Oded Nov 2 '13 at 7:58
Where did you take that screenshot? You only provided where the highlighted link leads to, so I cannot verify the other links. – Martijn Pieters Nov 2 '13 at 8:25
Was it this question? – Martijn Pieters Nov 2 '13 at 8:31
@MartijnPieters yep, that was the question. – Noctis Nov 2 '13 at 8:46

You are reading those numbers wrong, I am afraid. Those numbers are not answer counts. If you mouse over the number, the tool tip says:

Vote score tooltip

And indeed, the question you linked to has score 0.

I verified all the other scores on the post in question and all the question scores are up-to-date.

Gosh I feel silly ... I never hoovered above the numbered, Just assumed they are answers for some reason ... You're right, those numbers are the upvotes on the Question, nothing to do with the answers – Noctis Nov 2 '13 at 8:47
