You can just ignore that (select it in F-Droid → ⋮ → “Ignore All Updates”).
microG uses the same signature as Play Services to provide its functionality, so F-Droid has picked up your real Google Play Services and thinks it’s microG.
If you search for your old build number, you’ll find that that corresponds to Google Play Services.
You have the real Google Play Services app installed.
MicroG is an open source app that pretends to be the Google Play Services app, for people who want more privacy.
F-Droid thinks MicroG is installed because it uses the same package name - which I think is com.google.android.gms - and that’s how it distinguishes apps from each other.
But you can’t just simply install MicroG over the top of the real Google Play Services app. It won’t work like that. You would have to remove the Google Play Services app, and install MicroG as a system app, and make sure it has the right permissions for things, etc. And you would have to reinstall it again every time there’s an update to Android.
The easiest way to replace it with MicroG would be to find a ROM that already includes MicroG.
