Re: addon updater


Its both in the nvda help menu check for nvda update and the tools menu check for addon updates


Currently I can check for both addon updates and nvda update without an error


And others have found the same , it sometimes works but more often than not it does not

the problem is via check for updates menu item in NVDA only

And let's be perfectly clear here, it's via the Check for add-on updates in the NVDA Tools submenu.  The way this reads, it sounds like the Check for update. . .  option in the NVDA Help submenu.

I get the error message when I try a manual check for add-on updates.  I do not know whether this message is real (as in there is an actual error occuring) or spurious, as sometimes exception logic for "normal errors" can get buggy and a true error message gets thrown when, in reality, there isn't one.

I need to go back through this whole topic to see if an issue ticket for Add-On Updater exists for this.  If not, I'll create one, as something's gone wrong.
