Description of Problem:
When attempting to update GtkSharp from the Help->Check for Updates the item appears to download but fails to install.
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Go to the updater in Help->Check for Updates (stable channel) after having installed GtkSharp 2.12.20
2. Attempt to update to 2.12.21
The installer open and closes quite quickly presumably due to an unreported error.
Updating GtkSharp to 2.12.21
How often does this happen?
I have tried to perform the update by manually installing the package, but the latest package on the mono website is still 2.12.20
Can you please find the failure reason in the Windows Error Log?
I looked in the logs to see that the package was installed correctly and confirmed this in the control panel. So the issue seems to be more that Xamarin Studio still thinks that the package need to updated for some reason and is trying to install an already installed package.
I also just looked at the Help->About->Details box and found the following information in Xamarian Studio.
Version 4.0.9 (build 12)
Installation UUID: d03c4f6d-c3bf-4682-a921-ea484b2d6d2b
Microsoft .NET 4.0.30319.18052

Windows 6.1.7601.65536 (64-bit)
The website has been updated to link to 2.12.21 (our current stable) MSI.
You might also want to try the beta installer for 2.12.22, the URL is http://download.xamarin.com/GTKforWindows/Windows/gtk-sharp-2.12.22.msi
Updated to 2.12.22 and it seems to have resolved the issue.
I'm running the Xamarin Studio Stable channel and it is currently stuck at GtkSharp 2.12.20, it keeps informing me over and over again that 2.12.22 is downloaded and ready to install but after the update the same update message appears again.
I tried to run the gtk-sharp linked above manually where I got the option to Repair or Remove, running repair gave an error which also was found in the error logs:

The upgrade using XamarinStudio gives the following entires
