Malwarebytes not updating in Malwarebytes for Windows Support Forum Posted June 3, 2018 The problem isn't that their db servers are down for maintenance. That is normal. The issue is the program is not coded to handle it properly. A simple flag on the server to let the program go on about it's business and wait for things to come back up. With a message explaining whats going on coming up for those trying to update manually. Then no one would be worrying and wasting hours of their bloody time removing and reinstalling the program to get it working.
