Since V2.x I've noticed that PSI updates aren't detected and auto installed. Why would you not update your own software? Seems kind of odd.
For instance, the latest 220.127.116.1101 is not auto updating over 18.104.22.1683. I've tried to rescan and it still shows Secunia PSI up to date.
At the very least it should show an updated version is available and let the user manually update. Yes, I know the intent of PSI is for it to be a vulnerability upgrader, however the program itself should be patched to the latest version.

You answered your own question with the
last sentence in your post: "Yes, I know the intent of PSI is for it to be a vulnerability upgrader, however the program itself should be patched to the latest version."
PSI is a "vulnerability upgrader"-no vulnerability-never has been-therefore no upgrade. Version 1.x.x.x does have a balloon 'nag' when first launched that a new version of PSI is available for download. To my
knowledge that is the only automatic mention of a
new version being offered, not because that version
Hope this helps.

|I simply acknowledged that I know the intent of Secunia PSI. That said, the PSI app itself should be excluded, certainly when bugs and limitations are fixed. Limitations that can cause unintended results as a result of continuing to use an old version.
Read the fixes in the current version. More than one fix that can permit the PSI app to work properly for certain users. And this is NOT the first update that addressed more serious operational bugs.
Or, Secunia can just continue to live with their head in the sand and not update their own app when necessary.
At the very least go back to V1 days and advise users of an update to your "auto updater app". Duh!
List of fixes on 22.214.171.12401
Detailed view: The user can decide whether to view the list of programs as a detailed view or an icon view
Criticality: The detailed view now includes criticality ratings for programs that need updating
Number of installations: The detailed view shows the number of installed program versions
More information: Right-clicking a program that is not up-to-date now provides a link to more information (the Secunia Advisory on the Secunia website)
Add notification to install Microsoft Update if it is not installed
Bug with "long scan time for initial scan" has been fixed
Language selection when upgrading between major versions has been fixed
Ignore rules created in PSI2 are now ignored after upgrade (since the way ignored updates are handled has changed)
Manual downloads for updates to 64-bit programs don't try to download the 32-bit versions
Warning about unknown variable has been fixed
Updates to translations of non-English versions of the PSI
Correct notice about trusted sites to point to psi3.secunia.com
Various minor bug fixes
