With the 2.8.6 beta release installed I would not expect the Updater to be showing 2.8.5 as a new update, or for it to be downloading this version automatically.

The above action suggests the Updater does not correctly handle the version numbers or comparison of the version numbers.

Fixed the updater logic, it should now handle this better.
