Hi MāiợỖoŞh--This means you're probably using a computer that's managed by an admin like your company or school. In these types of cases, they don't allow you to manually update Chrome, but they'll usually push updates to your computer based on your IT departments guidelines. If you have any questions, we'd suggest you reach out to your company/school's IT department.

Jennifer--Have you checked out this article here?

Rusty--can you provide more info about the issue you're seeing?
