I often launch Wireshark by opening a pcap file. Sometimes it offers to upgrade. But it is a catch 22. If I say yes, it discovers a copy of Wireshark is running and requires me to close it, but it won't autoclose, because it thinks I have unsaved data. If I close it, that also closes the upgrade process, and I'm left with nothing. If I then just start Wireshark, it no longer offers to upgrade, so I must go to help and then the download link and download from the web site. At that point I must close Wireshark, but at least the upgrade process is not attached to the copy of Wireshark I'm closing.

Just use it as a reminder. Nothing beyond that. I always regard updating a machine as a task I need to do deliberatly. Not just because the tool detects an update.But that is just my take on things.
