New back entry door - odd frame width size??

Hi all,

Just finished the kitchen remodel and now in the process of replacing all kitchen doors and entrance ways. I have done many interior doors, so I want to give the back exterior door a shot...but I am pretty confused on measuring for the frame width. I'm replacing typical 1960's entry door and storm door combo with a single steel door. The one I want is an exterior door from Menards that comes in either 4 9/16 or 6 9/16 size...but my measurement seems to be more like...5 9/16? Not sure if I am doing this right, so I am posting pics. If I am doing this right, is there anyway to make this work? Thanks for the help!
