Some conflicts were found in the installation area

I'm routinely getting the same warning in every incremental update:

Some conflicts were found in the installation area

File: plugins/DatabaseTools/lib/database-impl.jar
Action: Update
Problem: Modified
Solution: IGNORE

Is it something to worry about?

If I hit "Proceed" the update completes without (apparent) issues but it's the third update in a row where it happens.

Could you please attach a screenshot of this?

I'm sorry, Dmitry. I just proceeded with the update to 2018.2.5 after writing down the details.

But the dialogue is identical to e.g. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/28587234/android-studio-update-some-conflicts-found-in-installation-area save for the additional button and the file reported (mine is "plugins/DatabaseTools/lib/database-impl.jar").

It seems that you have a modified version of this JAR. Please remove your installation and install it back, it should stop the issue from appearing on the next update: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-163331

Done!

(BTW, I didn't modify any file inside %programFiles%\JetBrains\PhpStorm 2018.2, not at least intentionally.)

I had this same problem in Webstorm for MacOS, for two updates in a row I was getting  "Some conflicts were found in the installation area" with a long list of files of unknown purpose.  The fix: following the instructions above, I just went back to the webstorm download site, downloaded a new version, renamed it "old", installed the new, verified that everything was working as before, including updates, and then deleted the "old" version.  I assume it is a flaw in the updater, since I don't know where these conflicts came from.  Probably a similar fix will work on Windows.
