After struggling with updates from time to time, I think it would be great to have a “check for updates” button in either assistant or the main program’s settings.
Automatic updates fail all the time (proxy/vpn/etc) and reinstalling software can be a pain on corporate computers (user ain’t got no permissions, sir).
I’m honestly surprised this fairly basic functionality is still missing.
Hell, hide it in a wall of menus for all I care, so the average user can’t find it.
Just having the option would make troubleshooting problems with updating a lot easier.
