I was on  I used "Install Application Updates" and it downloaded and installed  It then said it had to restart Malwarebytes to finish the install.  It did so and now About still shows and "Install Application Updates" says no updates are available.  Where did go?

So what I saw being downloaded and installed would have been 1.0.374?

I thought I was getting because I use a software update checker utility (SUMo) which showed that it was available so I thought that is what I was downloading and installing.  It is interesting that SUMo shows many users are on  Could this be a beta or something?

Correct, it was the CU 1.0.374.  Programs like SUMo always seem to get the version info wrong because Malwarebytes updates components and the individual file versions do not necessarily reflect the same version info as the entire package/installer (for example, if you check Programs and Features to see what version it shows for Malwarebytes and compare that to Malwarebytes various files and their versions which you can easily do by running the Malwarebytes Support Tool and checking the mbst-check-results.txt file you'll see that they use lots of different version numbers) and the version info for an individual file only changes when the Developers have modified that particular file, so if a file doesn't change from one release to the next, then that file's version info is left intact.

There is no beta in testing at this time to my knowledge and I know of no 2527 build, so I'm not sure where they got that version info from.
