Obviously when you double click it is instead choosing one of your older versions of Pages.
The documents all have .pages extensions but unfortunately different formats.

Yes, I agree that's obvious.
The document was written by Pages 5, so it is presumably in the Pages 5 format, exactly as it should be. And Get Info says it should open by default with Pages 5, which is again just as it should be.
So why does double-click try to open it with a previous version of Pages? And what can I do to change that?

As I said the file extension for both is .pages.
Quite a mess of Apple's creation.
You can wait for Apple to fix it, give up now, or (most likely) wait for Apple to never fix it, then give up.

I am in the same boat. All was working fine and I cannot open a single file that I've created over the past 48hrs. I've review ALL of the previous discussions and nothing is working. I've got files in icloud and my desktop that are unopenable through any means (dragging to the icon, open with, open within the app, etc.)
I use this for work and it need to be fixed immediatately

What does "nothing is working" mean.
I doubt you have read ALL the previous discussions on the subject, there are hundreds, nearly all repeating exactly the same thing.
You have two versions of Pages on your Mac and are opening the wrong one.
Check to see if you have an older version of Pages in your Applications/iWork folder?

Peter, you are being supremely unhelpful here. We're not idiots, and suggesting we wait until Apple never fixes it is utterly useless. If it weren't totally obvious that you're a mere troll, I might actually care.
I too am having this problem. Only one version of Pages (5.0.1 - the newest) and files still, all of a sudden, won't open.

Only thing that has worked for me it deleting and redownloading THE ONE VERSION THAT I HAVE INSTALLED. So try that, Tim.

I honestly don't know whether or not you are an idiot Ryan.
Whatever Apple and I disagree on, they do not think I am a Troll.
…and do you want to put money on Apple changing course from what it has done?

Same situation here.
I opened the file yesterday with Page 5.0.1 on my iMac.
It said do I want to update; I replied yes.
I updated the file and saved it.
I later opened the same file (in the iCloud) using my iPad Air.
I didn't do any and quit the app.
Today I tried to open the file again on my iMac.
And be the message: "You need a newer version of Pages..."
Something is wrong.

I just noticed that my THOUGH my installed version of Page is version 5.01, in the App Store it shows that my "Installed" version is 5.1.
So I moved the version I had from Application to the Trash and restarted my iMac.
I went to the App Store and it showed Pages with an Update status, it showed "Installing" (1/16/14 4:59)
I looked again and it again showed "Update" status, after showing "Installed", I went back to the Search page and AGAIN it is showing "Update".
Something is REALLY wrong.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 14, 2014 6:24 AM (in response to Roy Wagner)
I forgot to add:
Even though it is stilling showing "Update", it is version 5.1 (1769) and it can now edit the document that would not open before.
And after reopenning the App Store it is showing, properly as "Installed".
