Which app is it that stopped working?
How does this tie in with Electron or Atom?

Atom text editor

Not answering your question … but the first step I would take is to use Atom search feature and only then turn to the forum for help after your research. This saves a lot of forum time.

Here is a search for “squirrel problem” using just two keywords taken from your post. Of course your issue might be different (e.g. 32bit) but it is a start to troubleshooting yourself.

[P.S.] Searching “cleanDeadVersions” yields more clues. You get the general idea.

The log file dump at the start of this conversation is for the discord app, not Atom. Study the paths mentioned in the log.

The problem with Atom may have the same type of problem. But that we do not know until being told what the symptoms of your troubles are.
