    Did not find a solution, but copied over the dir from my other computer with the upgrade already finished. And everything works again.

    Hi @frederik9190, thank you for letting us know about this issue, and I'm sorry that you encountered it.

    Generally the PermissionDenied error means, well, pretty much what it sounds like: that something on the system has denied 1Password the permission it needs to move its files around and complete the upgrade. This could be a security app (like antivirus or an endpoint security solution), and sometimes it may be because of security settings in the OS itself.

    In any case, it's great to hear that things are now working properly - although we wouldn't generally recommend copying your 1Password folder from one device to another. In case it's helpful, I'd recommend adding 1Password to your AV apps' allow list, rebooting the device, and trying the update again.

    Thanks, and we appreciate you bringing the issue to our attention!
