The failing log says the the RESTART MANAGER is disabled so FilesInUse is used. FilesInUse can only detect applications with a window.

However, this has nothing to do with upgrade detection. I've never encountered a false-false upgrade detection.
Are you absolutely sure that another version is already installed?
