Display Current WP Version on Updates Page

WP admin displays the current version of WordPress using "At a glance" widget and in the footer.
But, when there's an update available the footer version highlight gets replaced with "Get 5.x.x"

So, it will be good to display the current version number with the update message"
"You can update to WordPress 5.4.1 from the current 5.x.x automatically."

A minor suggestion, but I'd swap those around for clarity (and tighten up the wording a little).

This site is currently running on WordPress version {X.x.x}.
You can update to version {Y.y.y} automatically:
