Please do this, manually download the updates from HERE
Double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install and update.


Another option is the Command Line

Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware supports a few simple, but important, command line parameters. To start the program using command line, simply click the Start Menu, Run, and type the following:

mbam.exe /runupdate

allows you to update the program without displaying result dialogs.
OR

mbam.exe /updateshowdialog

allows you to update the program displaying all dialogs.
