Cannot finish updating from
Version 1.20.103 Chromium: 88.0.4324.152 (Official Build) (64-bit)
The associated message is
“Nearly up to date! Relaunch Brave to finish updating.”
Relaunching brings back the same message, without any change in the installed version.
I downloaded and reinstalled Brave without any change.

Expected update to 1.21.73, Chromium 89.0.4389.72
but cannot get beyond current installed version:
Brave Version 1.20.103
Chromium Version 88.0.4324.152

Windows 10 Home Version 2004, up to date.

Can you try re-running the installer and see if it shakes loose whatever is stuck and applies the update? Note that it will not overwrite any data, just fetch any necessary update files. If you no longer have the installer on your PC, you can re-download it here.

That worked. I don’t know why the previous re-install did not work, I installed using the same file BraveBrowserSetup.exe which I had downloaded and installed earlier today.

Glad that worked – if you get the same behavior for the next browser update, please let us know and we’ll dig into the issue.
