Update Error with Beta 98

Postby SaberCats2K » Sat Jun 09, 2018 12:31 pm

When I selected Check for Updates, it got this error:

Update Error!
DVDpedia can't be updated when it's running from a read-only volume like a disk image or an optical drive. Move DVDpedia to Applications folder using Finder, relaunch it from there's, and try again.

I had already moved the Pedias to the Applications folder prior to launching the app. I got this error with Bookpedia, CDpedia, & DVDpedia, but not Gamepedia.

Thank you for the bug report on the update engine on the beta. I recently updated it and two other users are having the same issue. Haven't yet figured out what permissions settings is causing the updater to see the Applications folder as not updatable.

Please update the beta manually (They just released a new version of Sparkle, the updater, and I integrate it into beta build 99.) If it happens on the next update after that, do let me know. I'll might have to report it up to the Sparkle developers.
