Saturday I checked again, still no updates. So I started Wireshark, let VLC do an update check, and saw this:
An HTTP request is made to host update.videolan.org path /vlc/status-win-x64. The reply says 3.0.16 is the latest version.
That’s why I get no updates when VLC does the check.
The same is true for 32-bit VLC.
I informed the Videolan team.
