Check for Update does not work

I try to check for updates (Menu Scrivener > Check for Update) in Scrivener version 3.01 (966).
However, Scrivener gives an erroro message.

But I AM running Scrivener from the Applications folder.

What is the file in the Applications folder? What happens when you open Scrivener from your Applications folder? Does another window open asking you to drag it to your Applications folder? Could you perhaps attach a screenshot of Scrivener in your Applications folder?

Thanks and all the best,

I have no idea what’s going on but I had the same issue and I just re-downloaded the app from the site and ran the update and it worked. I don’t know what just happened.

Hi, I had the same issue and I just figured out how to fix it. I took scrivener and put it in the trash and then I took it out of the trash and ran the update. That seem to work.
