Why? Because some stupid idiot at Adobe thought that updating the update checker should overwrite/take over for the CS6 Adobe Application Manager with their overbloated Creative Cloud update checker and then not have the %#$%$$^#%%# thing NOT work when you click on Update.
So right now, by way of CS5/Updates The Adobe Application Manager is working, downloading the same files that that asinine ‘Creative Cloud’ won’t.
And for all those that think I am requesting assistance, think again. I already did all the rigamarole and it didn’t work.
