Sometimes, it will happen.
This means if your plugin updates itself, it may break and require maintenance. I discovered it with my JailBreak plugin, and since then I made the plugin to auto update a seperate plugin which doesn't get updated automatically EVER

This happened to the most important plugin, Left4dhooks

Edit: The broken file ( .smx ) was exactly 100,000 bytes smaller than the proper file.

This is the updater causing the issues: https://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?t=169095

Sometimes it apparently mistakes the paths/files: The translation .txt file had the prior size of the .smx file, (and contained binary code), while .smx had the (prior updating) size of the small translation file .

Making an extra plugin on top of whatever plugin or package of plugins you have that utilizes Updater but won't update itself ever.
