Unable to update Intellij IDEA automatically to 2023.3.4



I'm having a problem updating IntelliJ IDEA from the 'IntelliJ IDEA and Plugin Updates' tab.

I only see the option 'Download.' I don't have the option 'Update and Restart.'

I prefer not to download the new version from the official website and reinstall it in a new directory.

With previous updates, there was always an option that allowed for automatic updating to the new version, including when changing the minor version.

For some major updates it's not possible to provide patch to update, especially if there are core changes. In this case we suggest to download full version.
