TurboTax Business tells me I must apply an update in order to e-file. Online->Check for Updates says no updates available. Re-install did not help. How I do resolve this?

I have downloaded and installed TurboTax Business 2018 multiple times. I do a Windows uninstall before re-downloading and re-installing.

Each time TurboTax is installed, it tells me that updates are available.  The updates download and install normally.

When I try to e-file, I get a dialog box that says updates are available and must be applied before I can e-file.  When I check for updates, none are available.

I have also tried a manual download of updates (w_bizrelsuperpatch_ttax).  The manual update appears to complete normally, and requires a Windows restart, but I still get a dialog box telling me updates are available and must be applied before I can e-file.

How do I resolve this?  I'm running a new install of Windows 10.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
