|RemovePreviousVersions is set to true in the deployment project.|
No, you misunderstood.
In the MSI, there is a standard Custom Action called RemoveExistingProducts. Its default location, as per MS guidelines, is near the end of the installation sequence. This is designed to reduce the overhead of removing files which get replaced by indentical versions.
If one wants to be sure that all files get removed during an upgrade, one typically moves this CA to near the beginning of the sequence.
That brings us neatly to the subject of Custom Actions. I'm willing to bet you have one or more Custom Actions which are set to execute in the User Interface sequence. If the UI sequence doesn't get run, then clearly the CAs won't get run, either.
