Restart and update does not work (MacOS)


#43

Same, I tried all the listed solutions, but still restarts with same version.


#44

This is still an issue for me on macOS 10.13.6 with the most recent version of Atom. Why hasn’t this been fixed yet? No other application I know of has this problem, so this shouldn’t be hard to fix.


#45

I have also seen this issue for a while. I have to manually download each version. I have tried all suggestions for fixing in this thread. Latest OS X.

Sometimes it seems to work if I wait a long time (5+ minutes). Perhaps something is taking unusually long and a progress indication is needed.

Seems like a progress bar has been a useful tool for the last several decades… might be worth the investment on their part

I just noticed something, and it might help debugging the issue - although I’m really confused about it. This problem is happening since I started using atom, and most of the time I just download the new version and install it manually. But this morning I had two updates, one from 1.30.0 to 1.31.0 and then to 1.31.1.

At the first update I was curious what is it doing in the background; I wanted to get the PID, so I issued a ps aux | grep -i atom, and it immediately opened up. Then another update came, I waited a little bit, it didn’t seem to be doing anything, so I issued the command again and - believe it or not - it popped up again (the updated version of course). I also had 2 Atoms running after the second update (I guess the previous process somehow didn’t exit).

I don’t know how it happens, but that’s what I found, so next time I update atom, I’ll do a ps or something :slight_smile: (I really don’t understand how this happens, maybe a deadlock?).
