Specifying Octopak package in step

I'm getting an error when I specify my octopak package name. I have it outputting from team city with the name

{solution name}.{release number}.nupkg.

Octopak is always outputting the nupkg at the end, I only specify the release number myself.

I am trying to specify in my deployment step the same name {solution name}.{release number}.nupkg

However, no matter what I specify the actual name as Octopus deploy always modifies the name to be

{whatever I set it too}.{release number}

So if I specify what I want I get

{solution name}.{release number}.nupkg.{release number}

This makes it impossible to format the name with the ".nupkg" ender so I always get the error: "Activity failed with error 'package {incorrect name} could not be downloaded."

How do I get octopak to not use the nupkg ender or get Octopus deploy to stop automatically altering my name in a way I didn't specify?

    I didn't realize I needed to push the nupkg to a server in a prior step. Handled that and pointed it to the appropriate nuget server and it works fine in this regard now.
