Dear Olivier

Error detected in "install update"

If you need help with this issue please contact us on https://answers.launchpad.net/mg5amcnlo
str : This version of MG5 doesn't support auto-update. Common reasons are:
             1) This version was loaded via bazaar (use bzr pull to update instead).
             2) This version is a beta release of MG5.
I'm using MG5_aMC_v3.4.0.RC

Indeed Release Candidate are preview and we do not have dedicated server to track the change in those version in order to be able to offer the "install update" feature.

So to only solution is to download the new tarball for the second release candidate.
or move back to 3.3.2 and wait for the official release of 3.4.0 which should be available via the "install update" feature.
