Install update error

Asked by Charlie on 2018-05-05

Dear Olivier,

When I try to install update, it gives me the following error, and the same is for install maddm.

Command "install update " interrupted in sub-command:
"install update" with error:
OSError : [Errno 17] File exists: '/home/xianhui/hep-soft/MG5_aMC_v2_6_1/UPDATE_TMP'
