Plex media player update throws a 'Update Problem' when installing the update

'Unable to create symlink /Applications/Plex Media Player.app.new/Contents/Resources/qml/QtQml/Models.2/libmodelsplugin.dylib to
../../../../Plugins/quick/libmodelsplugin.dylib details: File exists'

Does anyone have any ideas?

    I have the same issue for some time. What I move the old client to trash and download new. I also started using PLEX on Safari. The big plus is that Safari is using less CPU than native client.
