PortableApps does not update some applications

For a long time, the portableapps suite do not update automatically some applications. In the beginning it was just libreoffice. I stayed at libreoffice 7.1.4 and believe I did this update manually. Now, other applications have been added to this list:
- CCleaner via ccPortable 6.04.10044
- Opera 91.0.4516.20
- Team Viewer 15.34.4
- Wise Ddata recovery 6.1.3

I have 2 PCs with Windows 7 64-bit and have the same problem on both.
How can I solve this problem?
Thank you

Renamed Folders?

Did you rename any of the folders that contain the apps? Have you checked the drive for errors?

No, never rename the destination folders. They are in the same position where they always been.
When the PC crashed and i restarted it, sometimes chkdsk started automatically

Outdated Apps

That's because a new version of Telegram was posted last night. Are you sure the apps you want updated have been updated in our database? Check their homepages on the site to see what our current version is. If it is out of date, check the Outdated Apps Thread: https://portableapps.com/development/outdated

Different Issue

This is a different issue. The platform is correctly identifying that they are out of date but is unable to download the apps. The apps in question are all hosted by either us or by The Document Foundation. It's likely your other apps are updating correctly as they are hosted on SourceForge. You could be blocked from downloading from our servers and TDF's if you're at a university or corporation. Have you fully updated Windows 7 to the last available updates including fully updating Internet Explorer?

Digital Certificates

Without updating Windows 7, your digital certificates store will wind up out of date. You'll be unable to connect to some servers. There are also patches that correct other connectivity issue. Not to mention security issues.

Hallo.

Hallo.

I hope it is OK that I add my problem here

I have a problem with updating the apps. I start the update as recommended and very often the download seems successful, but after the end of the download the installation does not run successful.

There is short the message installing and immediately it says finished the installation. But after checking the app was not updated and is in the list of app that need an update

I don't know what the problem could be. Is the a way to check that the download was at least correct?

Thanks
portableAppUser
