Unable to Update Brave Browser

Description of the issue:
Not possible to update Browser, error message says "If you are using a firewall please whitelist BraveUpdate.exe’

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
I have tried uninstalling Brave, I have turned off my firewall.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Cannot update Brave (and now cannot reinstall)

Expected result:
Updated Brave

Reproduces how often:
Every time

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
W7, Version 0.64.77 Chromium: 74.0.3729.169 (Official Build) (64-bit)

So, a little comment here. Even with the firewall off I am unable to update Brave. The only thing left could be my aggressive HOSTS file.

Is Brave phoning home on any Google IPs? What IPs need to be allowed through for Brave to install/update?
