Description Larry Ewing [MSFT] 2011-08-25 18:38:44 UTC
The automatic update logic keeps trying to replace MT 4.9 with MT 4.0.6 and the update dialog doesn't display the old/new version numbers to help you make a choice.

Hey Larry,

Is this still an issue for you?

Could you recheck after we made some changes to this earlier today.

Comment 2 Larry Ewing [MSFT] 2011-08-29 18:21:57 UTC
What should I update to test?  Simply relaunching md from last week still shows the problem
Comment 3 Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2011-08-29 18:28:23 UTC
Are you using MonoDevelop 2.8 or another version?

We have only fixed the pre-2.8 updater.
Comment 4 Larry Ewing [MSFT] 2011-08-29 18:34:34 UTC
2.8 a 2 (2.7.11) is what is currently installed do I need to manually install something newer? or let it downgrade to mt 4.0.6 so that it can upgrade itself?
Comment 5 Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2011-09-27 10:16:55 UTC
This should be fixed now with the new pipeline and the udpates to the channels.
