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