Hi. I'm using Clover Configurator 5.4.4.0 on macOS 10.14.4. From the Install/Update Clover tab I click Check Now and it shows me:
Current booted version - 4862
Remote available revision - 4934

I then click Update, the installation downloads and runs, I reboot and I'm still on the same 4862. I only have one hard drive and one instance of macOS, so not sure why it's not taking.

Any suggestions?

Check your main drive with OS on it. Look for EFI Backup folder. Do you have a few clover folders in there? When you load clover over an existing version it usually drops the old version there. You can delete them and run again and see if it’s the latest version.

Thanks for the quick reply. Very close! You are correct about the EFI Backup folder on the main drive after installation, but deleting and reinstalling only recreated the backup folder. Instead, I manually replaced two files in my EFI with two files from the EFI Backup:
EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi
EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi

I rebooted and the new version shows correctly during the Clover screen.

Thanks!
