Unable to install or update Paint.NET

Either when updating version 4.3 to 4.3.2 or after uninstalling it and trying a fresh install of 4.3.2, I get the error 1618 "Another installation is already in progress. Complete that installation before proceeding with this install."

There is no other intstallation in progress. Rebooting (Windows 10.0.19043 Pro) also makes no difference.

There may still be an installation running in the background, probably from a Windows Update or something.


If that's the case you'll usually you'll see something like TiWorker.exe taking up a bunch of CPU time over in Task Manager.
