Can't Update Brave

I keep getting the the message that Brave cannot be updated…the message shows up by the the dash lines on my brave browser…why can’t I update brave??? plz advise

@starwoman can you share a screenshot of the issue, your OS, and Brave version?


I’ve got the same issue. And not only that, I find ironic that Brave automatically redirects me to the google chrome website to download Google Chrome! :smiley:


Windows 7
IT just tells " Brave couldn’t update to last version, so you’re missing out… […]"

Reinstall Brave button is available right after, but it makes you go to Google Chrome.

@starwoman If you have same issue with @Sergio1992, then it’s a known issue. See Brave says it is not up to date and redirects me to Chrome

Apologies for the inconveniences.

Can you let us know which version you’re on? No matter what, you can always download the latest versions from

And it will keep your data/history if you install it over your existing installation (no uninstall required), so you do not have to worry about that.


It worked on a friend’s PC. Same problem, right solution! Thnx!!!
