Update List of Applications after Update immediately

    VulnDetect offers for some apps (like VulnDetect or Firefox) an update mechanism where I can update the app directly from the list of applications with just one mouse click.

    Today I clicked the button "Update" behind "Mozilla Firefox" and VulnDetect started updating Firefox.
    In the List of Applications the following info was shown:

    Firefox_Updating.png

    But the status "Updating" is still shown although Firefox was successfully updated:

    [2019-01-02 11:30:58.758+0060] Connecting to server: agent.vulndetect.com
    [2019-01-02 11:30:58.984+0060] Server returned 200 =>
    [2019-01-02 11:30:58.986+0060] Running task firefox 64.0
    [2019-01-02 11:31:30.451+0060] Process completed with status: 0
    [2019-01-02 11:31:30.451+0060] Successfully ran task
    

    Even when I do a manual check-in and reload the page, then the status is still "Updating".
    Only after a full system scan the status is shown correctly:

    Firefox_Updated.png

    The status should be updated immediately after installing the update!
    Otherwise a wrong status is shown for several hours (because a system scan is performed only once per day).

    Maybe you show the status Update Complete so users see that the update was successfully completed.
    Show it until the next system scan was performed.

    I agree.

    And this is also planned to be changed.
