Updates are available but applying them doesn’t work on macOS

This seems to be a problem that can happen very infrequently with Squirrel updater with permissions.

  1. Reboot (This is important because Squirrel will continually try to start a service and recreate a directory otherwise).
  2. Remove this directory ~/Library/Application\ Support/com.electron.brave.ShipIt/
  3. Start Brave and update.

It should work now.


Brave fails to update
Most recent version (0.19.139) of Brave crashes on launch
