I just updated from 2.05 to 2.06, and ran into the same issue I had the last time I updated. And the time before that.
If you don't go to "Advanced Options" and tick the box that says "Don't let the tdm updater update itself," you will just run into an endless loop and never get the update completed.
So my question is - why does this option even exist? The process seems entirely broken. Shouldn't the option be check marked by default? I guess I don't see what is accomplished by even having this as an option. Most software updates just run, update your software, and then exit. Done. I must be missing something here? If so, I'd be curious to know what it is.
Edit: OK so now, even more confusing stuff going on. When i first posted, TDM was in the middle of updating. Now it appears that I'm stuck in a new loop, where the updater is continually trying to download a file called:
tdm_update_2.05_to_2.06.zip (234.8 MB)
from just about every server available. It's been going on for about a half an hour now. I guess I'll cancel it and try to re-run it.
