#1453 Update Wizzard fails when started from within Package Manage

Alexander Grahn

If started from within the Package Manager, the Update
Wizzard crashes near the end of the updating process.
To be more explicit, it crashes when trying to delete
the old FNDB in the %UserData%\miktex\config directory.

Probably this is because the FNDB file is still opened
by the Package Manager, for, if one closes the MPM
right after firing up the Update Wizzard the failure
doesn't occur.
