Trying to update Safari 11.1.2 and I keep getting an error message. Something about unable to update because of an extension in use in Spotlight.

I can quit the application - but Spotlight is not an application.

  • what extension ? – Ruskes Sep 23 '18 at 18:19

    Try searching for Spotlight or Safari in your Activity Monitor and see if something pops up. – Ambidextrous Sep 23 '18 at 19:08

Don’t install/remove anything, instead, quit Spotlight from Activity Monitor once that message pops up and it will continue. Spotlight automatically restarts.
