Google chrome beta not updating

Manually downloading a new version of Chrome and trying to overwrite your current install won’t work either, as the new installation will still need to contact the update servers and the erroneously-set-policy will still block the update.

With the release of a version of Google Chrome that supported Group Policies, Google thoughtfully provided a template for all the potential Group Policy settings that could be applied at the enterprise level to a Chrome installation.Auto-updated provide fixes to sometimes critical issues, limiting exposure.to an Active Directory domain, and if this policy has been set to 0 or to a value greater than 77 hours, this setting will not be honored and replaced by 77 hours after August 2014.If you are affected by this, and still want to disable Chrome updates (NOT RECOMMENDED), you may do so by using 'Update policy override' as described here.“Google Chrome or Google Chrome Frame cannot be updated on account of inconsistent Google Update Group Policy settings.Use the Group Policy Editor to set the update policy override for the Google Chrome Binaries application and try again.”Q: Does the open-source Chromium browser auto-update like Chrome? Chromium does not have its own auto-update process, so if you are deploying Chromium, do you not need to worry about turning off auto-updates.Further, if you’re in a corporate environment, please double check with your IT department before proceeding.
