2.1.8 in-app update

Updating to 2.1.8 from within NWP (2.1.5 on OSX 10.13.1) fails at the last moment here.
Update downloads fine and gets extracted; the error message comes only when I click on 'Install and Restart'
Tried four times.
Worked fine downloading installer and doing it that way.
See screenshot.
I'll hope it's just me :D

Hello jb! I'm sorry for the trouble you encountered in trying to update to version 2.1.8. I'm glad you got it working.

The problem was actually due to a defect in version 2.1.5, where the automatic updater could fail to install newer versions. A lot of users had trouble when we first released version 2.1.6, but hopefully this time it maybe was "just" you, now that we're a few versions removed.

All the best to you, and happy holidays! ⛄️⭐️

I've got the same problem. Haven't been able to upgrade beyond 2.1.5. Tried multiple times, failed, and have no idea what to do about it.

Best,
Sandy

I also can't upgrade beyond 2.1.5 for the same reason. How does one get beyond this? Download an earlier version (if one is available) and try to upgrade from that?

Have you tried downloading the installer, rather than doing it in-app?
That worked for me.
