Package is in use

I'm getting the error Package is in use when trying to download a new update. I've never seen this before and not seeing anyone else post about it in the forums. Does anyone have an idea?

  • Delete the package and try to download the update again from the Package Library.

  • That worked. Does anyone have an idea what it means?

    I did notice while cleaning up my repository today that the latest version of Evernote (the program I was having an issue with) was listed as an unused file making me think it was downloaded, but almost as if something else was getting in the way. I haven't tried to redownload with my Anti-Virus off yet and will in the morning.

  • Not sure what causes it, but this is the solution that PDQ support gave me months ago. They may know the details behind the behavior.
