Outlook will not update to 16.68 (all other Office apps do)

Brass Contributor

This is driving me nuts. I've removed, cleaned, reinstalled.

Situation: Office apps - Word, Excel, PPT - will update to 16.68. Even Teams and Edge are okay.

HOWEVER, Outlook will not (it only goes to 16.66, and I have to manually download/install 16.66_2), and 16.68 NEVER shows up.

On another Mac? No problem.

(note - this troubled Mac is running Ventura - is there a compatibility issue w/ Outlook sync and Ventura?)

oh, and the new Microsoft Forums are BROKEN. "Post flooding" when I NEVER POSTED ANYTHING

I used 16.68 Outlook briefly. It crashed at startup EVERY TIME I launched it. Perhaps it has been rolled back / removed from release?

@robmilk it appears to work okay on my 2018 MBP 15"... literally will not even show on my 2019 MBP 15". (both Intel processors; same account; the only diff is that the 2019 has an Exchange or Enterprise Gmail account but... that wouldn't block the update, I don't think?)
