This is the actual error, but I don’t know what it means.

2018-03-10 14:39:43> Unhandled exception: System.AggregateException: One or more errors occurred. ---> System.IO.IOException: The process cannot access the file 'C:\Users\ensci\AppData\Local\atom\packages\atom-1.24.1-full.nupkg' because it is being used by another process.

Since the error seems to be happening with Squirrel, the autoupdate software that manages the installation for Electron programs like Atom and Discord, you can try downloading the manual install version from the GitHub releases. The significant difference between the two is that without Squirrel Atom won’t automatically upgrade when a new version comes out.
