Update process is tedious

I talked with @laurent22. It seems that

  • we used to use electron-builder's auto-update service, but disabled it due to bugs (see commit and commit),
  • Joplin might migrate away from electron-builder to electron-forge at some point in the future.

As such, it seems that Electron's autoUpdater is probably a better choice.

If there's an open issue for this I'd be happy to work on a PR!

I've created an issue for this Support auto-update · Issue #8958 · laurent22/joplin · GitHub.
