WiX 3.10.1 failing to update to 3.10.2 #5234
Failure to update to 3.10.1 to 3.10.2 due to missing source
On Windows 10 (build 10240) I used the Programs and Features applet to bring up the modify UI for my WiX 22.214.171.1243 install and checked for updates. It downloads 3.10.2 but it fails

Hi @rseanhall, some extra information for you. I got the same as the above log file when doing 126.96.36.1993 -> 188.8.131.526.
But, these bits of the old bundle's (184.108.40.2063) log file seem to contradict that the old bundle deleted it.
It appears that in this case the the cached bundle was not able to be deleted. However I can confirm that the file was actually deleted, and hence the above issue occurs.
I have some questions though:
I'm having a related, but different problem with my own custom bootstrapper where the engine fails to run the new bootstrapper because it has been deleted and I get this file logged:
It's intermittent so I have a feeling that it is timing related and that the new bundle isn't guaranteed to be run before the old bundle cleans it up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
FYI - here's the full log of the wix update failure.
