PortableApps.com Updater failing to update

While I saw a few update-related issues in the bug report thread, I'm not sure my issue is covered exactly so forgive me if this is redundant.

I've been using PA for a couple of years without issue and always have auto-update w startup of PA. In the past couple of weeks, the update runs as usual and a list of available updates appears, but immediately upon hitting 'next' I get the confirmation message that my apps have been updated and available, etc. Normally this takes a minute or two while the updater does its magic and you see the progress bar; but no more... now it seems no updates are happening despite the confirmation message, as the same issue arises every time I restart PA.

Bottom line, is this a problem with the updater? or maybe temp files somewhere on my pc that are creating sync issues? Suggestions anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

Screen-Reader Friendly

You've turned on screen reader friendly and are not manually selecting (highlighting) the apps before updating.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

No Problem

It happens often enough that I'm tweaking the way it works in an upcoming release.
