I'm confused by the wiki today - previous update indicated failed search; update today indicates they've extended the deadline. What's going on?

FYI, this is the email that I received from UNL SC yesterday.
"The purpose of this email is to update you on the status of your application for the Assistant/Associate Professor position - Requisition Number F_150074 - located in - Educational Psychology-1047 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. At this time, a decision has been made to close the search and not to fill the position."
However, they sent this one today.
"Per university policies, when a job announcement is altered, the search is “closed.” However, we haven’t closed the search, we’ve just altered some of the language in the job announcement and we had to extend the deadline to January 4, 2016. We’re waiting on our human resources department to re-post the job announcement and we had planned on emailing all of our applicants to let them know that the search deadline had been extended to January 4, 2016."
Thus, it seems like that they are going to repost the job ad with extended deadline.
