Visual Studio 2015 Extensions and Updates Install ‘Bug’

You need to open Visual Studio 2015 in order to get to Extensions and Updates, to update any updated extensions or updates.

37% (unscientifically made up number) of the time, it tells you that you have to shut down Visual Studio in order to continue.  Not ‘you may need to restart Visual Studio afterwards for the update to take effect’ (which does happen sometimes as well), but that you have to.  This, of course, makes no sense.

Especially if the Extension only applies to Visual Studio 2015, and it says you have to close down any open instances of Visual Studio 2013, etc.   I think it just searches for devenv.exe processes or something.
