Messy and confusing update process

That is not the first time that Cubase has a messy and confusing update process, but I’ve been struggling for about half an hour looping between the launch of the so-called launcher for downloading and having to close it if I do what this prompt says: ‘‘Quit the Steinberg Download Assistant and continue the installation by clicking ‘Retry’.’’

I’m on macOS 11.6 and have Cubase Pro 11.0.30 aiming to the next update identified.

You can bypass the download assistant by going to the Downloads section of the Steinberg Website. There, you can simply download the update installer, afaik.
