    So i saw that a Unity 2018.1.0b8 is available to download, but Unity Hub is displaying 5th beta. Only reinstallation of Hub solved the issue. Is this a known bug or is my Unity Hub broken? Sorry if my English is bad :)

    Usually, the updated installs file should appear in 24h (hub checks every 24h from start time). The hub also checks at startup (if you use Quit from the menu, and restart the hub).

    I had tried closing it and restarting it. Turned out I didn't notice it was in the tray - closing it there and restarting it found the new version - Doh :D

    @Charles_Beauchemin the hub doesn't seem to update every 24hs for me because I only just now got it to update by closing and reopening the hub, and beta 9 has been out for more than 5 days. Maybe you could add a "refresh/update list" button in the installs section to help users with this. I was quite confused as to why new betas didn't show up in the hub before reading this thread.
