Exit to Main Menu for Update?

I have been asked twice in the last two days to exit to the main menu so an update can be applied? The last fix that was listed was a few days ago and already downloaded and supposedly applied. What are these two additional updates about?

That would be the hotfix (if you mashed the keys through to start the game before it could apply) and/or the micropatch for week 3 of the Borderlands Anniversary event.

Yes, but why did it happen two days in a row? I figured the second one was for the Anniversary event but the hotfix was almost a week earlier and had already been applied.

The hotfix is not a persistent update - it only resides in memory. So it needs to be reapplied every time you restart the game. That’s because it is fundamentally different from a true update, which permanently modifies the game code once installed.
