The latest 8.6.1 update seems to resolve the two issues that were encountered with this update. Wp.org seems to sending the correct version now and the correct version is available for download on the wp.org page for Connections. So it seems they worked out their update issues as well.
I’m going to mar this resolved. Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance.
Again, apologies for the trouble this has caused you!
