Have you tried:

  • quit/close Brave
  • end all Brave processes from Task Manager
  • reopen Brave → try to update again

Yes, , I disabled all extensions, closed Brave, confirmed all instances of Brave had terminated, and received the same error when the update failed.

If you have a copy of the installer/download again from then you can just run the installer to fetch the latest version.

No need to uninstall. Just run the installer.

I’ll try that and report back.
Thank you!
