Upgrade problem

Hi,

I read about V2 in Daring Fireball and launched Superduper to update itself, but the upgrade failed. Note that although in the transcript below it suggests that the upgrade was successful, the version in my Applications folder is still 1.5.5.

Here is a dump of the relevant Console info:

Hi, Mike -- rare problem that's happening to some. Just download the program from elsewhere on the site and manually install -- that'll resolve the issue.

Sorry for the trouble.

OK thanks. And no problem - it's still super-easy to upgrade.

I had to recompile the Daily Backup.applescript, save it as an .app, and re-save my Daily Backup settings for the upgrade to work for me. I tried the auto upgrade and the manual install method.

Well, you don't really need "Daily Backup" any more, jcbeckman... just use the built-in scheduler!

My update failed similar to the original poster's update; here is part of the log:

|09:15:37 AM|Info| The software was successfully installed
|09:15:37 AM|Info| The install was successful.
|09:15:37 AM|Info| ......COMMAND => Copying upgrade bundle to temporary location
|09:15:37 AM|Error| ditto: /Applications/Utilities/SuperDuper!.app: No such file or directory

It is my understanding that a manual install is in order. My question is, if I go that route, do I need to worry about any deritus left over from the failed previous installation?

Nope, no detritus, themphill. You could remove the receipt from /Library/Receipts, though, if you'd like.
