Weird 1.19.0 Update behavior


On Windows 7, I was updating to 1.19.0 from 1.18.0, I would get random “Downloading Update” followed by “No Update Found” messages. After closing Atom I found I was unable to restart. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but the installer failed.

I was able to reinstall 1.14.0 (last installer that would run which could be system policy related), then monkey patch back to 1.18.0 using the 64-bit zip file. I was also able to inject 1.19.0 using the zip file, but attempting the update via the auto-update left a corrupt app-1.19.0 directory. Anyone else see this?


This must have been a weird bug on my PC. A reboot allowed me to install 1.19.0.
