2.8a1 installed... check for updates downloaded something but fails to install the update.
Each time I launch MD it prompts me to update but fails...

How is/was it failing to install?  There was a problem where 2.8's updater was trying to install monotouch's updates as root and so it wasn't tracking your license info (and asking to reactivate, etc) which is fixed in 2.8b1.

Can you try updating monodevelop and re-updating monotouch?

Yes, 2.8b1 seens to work... I was testing 2.8a1 and 2.8a2.
