Solution: 
Make sure you update the executable from the same directory that the executable
resides in. You can see your current directory with the Stata -pwd- command. 
Double-clicking the executable (just prior to updating, as David mentions) is 
a convenient solution to this issue.

The next update will correct this bug.
