Updates not updating



  • At east the latest one won't. First attempt produced a message saying update had not been installed due to unspecified error. Second attempt produced message saying installer couldn't extract the update. I've chosen to skip this update, so hope there was nothing important in it.

    Open in Explorer addressbar %TEMP% and delete all content in this folder. Try to update once more.

    Which Windows do you use? From which Vivaldi you wanted to update to which newer?



  • Same for me in every update. Looks like Vivaldi can't update because it can't destroy current process. This is annoying.

    I think that because after restarting the Windows 10 and click to Update Notifier in Notifications Center panel it's updating Vivaldi like a charm. Thanks.

    Windows 10, latest update. Vivaldi pre-latest update.

    @kadae It works nice on my Windows 10 for Stable (systemwide install) and Snapshot (user install).
    May be some antivirus/Windows Defender may block Vivaldi.

    Well, I have never had an update fail to install (Stable or snapshot - I have both installed). However, maybe as much as 98% of these updates have been performed via Help/Check for Updates; I've only seen/used the notification very rarely.
