Default Updater Button not doing what I think it should be doing

Whenever I see the Updater Button icon blinking, when I'm ready, I'll do a Restart in order to fetch the updates. But, after a conversation with another user, I thought I would try clicking the button to install updates. Well, when I clicked the button (it was blinking before I did that), it brought up a GUI with a Cylon eye indicating that it was working on the updates. But, then the GUI just closed and nothing else happened.

Doing a restart installed the updates.

Am I misunderstanding what that button is supposed to do?

Think this is correct, but I haven't extensively tested it.

flashing button indicates updates are either pending to be downloaded or downloaded pending on install (Depending on your user setting).

When flashing and clicking the update button will either
  • dialog asking you do you want to 'install and restart' (depending on your user setting). Meaning update is already pre-downloaded (default setting I believe).
  • dialog asking you do you want to download, think there might be second dialog if you want to install and restart.
  • auto 'install & restart' (no dialog)

When not flashing and clicking the update button will either
  • sends a request to the update network to poll if there are any new updates. For example, inbetween automatic check a new update might become available. Dialogs will show based on your settings.

if you don't click the flashing update button, on next close of application (Either close or restart) it will install updates, without asking you (by default), or asks you based on user setting via dialog.

note:
- core updates require restart of client to install.
- user settings can prevent updates
- user settings can change update behaviour (as indicated above).
- lack of dialogs may be influenced by remember settings from previous use.

OK, thanks. Then it is doing what it is supposed to. I want to do the updates myself, i.e., not have the program auto download and install.
