[MlMt] Auto-updater permission elevation

I use MailMate from a non-admin user account. It is installed in /Applications, and
apps installed there require admin permission to update. I’m on Big Sur.

Quite a while ago, the MailMate auto-updater stopped working for me, failing with
a permission error. It used to be that it would prompt for the admin password,
but this doesn’t happen anymore.

Is anyone else using this kind of setup? Does it work for you?
