This keeps appearing every time I open Chrome, every so often, or when I visit About Chrome. Updates fail. I've tried to completely wipe and reinstall Chrome. I've restarted. I've reinstalled GoogleSoftwareUpdate from dl.google.com independently. I've tried to "Open Anyway" from the Security & Privacy settings. All of this and nothing has worked.

I have the same issue. Before I updated to Catalina, Chrome was already garbage. Takes forever to open the app, and opening sites like Facebook and Yahoo seem to take forever. But I have that same stupid pop-up and I have tried clicking cancel, and it just keeps popping up. Or clicking "open" and it goes away until you open Chrome again. Chrome used to be the best browser, but just like most good things, they all must come to an end. Chrome sucks.

I had the same problem, fixed it by deleting both Chrome AND the file "GoogleSoftwareUpdate.bundle," which you can search for in the finder. Drag both to the trash and empty, then re-install a new Chrome package, it should work. Note that deleting Chrome alone will not resolve this issue.

Agreed - this chrome popup is obnoxious, yet it isn't the only issue this new OS change has brought about. One of these days I will learn not to change OS systems until a year after debut. My entire system is having strange issues. Please, Apple, ease up on the updates until you have the bugs ironed out. Let's see Steve Job's quality and attention to detail and functionality return. I expect this from Microsoft, not from you.

We have found that this update actually locks up parts of the Macbook.  One user was unable to access USB after the install.  Another every time they opened Finder on Macbook it would lock up the computer.
Another downloads would not finalize.  This "bundle"  seems to be the cause for all these problems.

This is incredibly annoying. It seems to be related to every tab. Launch a tab, get a popup.

Have the same problem with Chrome popping up the "GoogleSoftwareUpdate.bundle"; I have also had other strange issues.  I'm going to try uninstalling Chrome with the CleanMyMac app ... hope this picks-up all related files ... thanks to the dialog ... Take Care ... I also agree ... this version of Mac is a bit sloppy ...

Actually the fix was really simple (at least in my case), just uninstall Chrome, and Download then install from this Link https://cloud.google.com/chrome-enterprise/browser/download/#
