Just as a point of interest, since I myself encountered the issue, the newest release of Malwarebytes Premium (3.5.1) apparently may have an "overly active" anti-ransomware module, and not for the first time.  If you run into issues updating a program, and you have Malwarebytes Premium installed, turn off the anti-ransom module and select "Retry".  The program should then update successfully.

Have a great day.

Since a lot of our members use the Premium version, I'm sure they appreciate the heads up.

My pleasure, sir.  Proactive and knowledgeable staff, and other users here, have saved me countless hours chasing down strange issues because they proactively post about issues that they come across.

 

Just pulling my oar! :)

 

Have a great day.
