locked Re: "Updates" shown in spite of being up to date

Thanks Laurie,

I actually did exactly that since my first reaction to seeing the "Updates" text 
was to install the latest database.

The strange thing was that the "Updates" text disappeared a few seconds after 
starting up and then reappeared perhaps half a minute later.

Regardless, a complete deinstall/reinstall cycle seems to have fixed it now.

You will need to install the latest Callsigns database AFTER installing
JTAlert. JTAlert 2.16.17 comes bundled with the 2020-12-06 version of
the database which is now superseded by the most recent 2020-12-24
database. The JTAlert install will reset the installed database version
to 2020-12-06 and cause the "Updates" message. Just rerun the database
install which will set it to 2020-12-24 and the "Updates" message will
not appear.

BTW, stop JTAlert before trying to install a newer database.
