Usually Google Chrome updates work seamlessly.

One is prompted and the update occurs.

But, this last update did not work for me.

Your chrome is up to date.What’s new in Chrome.

 

Summary

Please do not be overly discouraged just because the GUI does not work.

Launch terminal mode and try to update manually.

If that does not work, try a complete re-install.

The nagging will stop.

And, you will reduce your security exposure; a bit.

All is well.
