I don't actually know that this is a bug, but I was looking through some code and spotted something that looked wrong. I'm a bit busy with a few other things, so I wanted to file this bug to make sure we look into this at some point.

This line shows the manual update prompt if !aus.canApplyUpdates. aus.canApplyUpdates depends on !isOtherInstanceRunning().

I'm concerned that this means that another instance running could cause the manual update prompt to be shown but, as I said, I haven't verified this.

It's still on my TODO list to look into this more closely. I haven't prioritized it since AFAIK there are no reports of this happening in the wild. Why do you ask? Do you believe you are experiencing this bug?
