Updating malwarebytes without internet
Locate Updates under scan status, and click on the link next to it there to run a manual check for update.
If it is not picked up, I'd suggest you download the program anew from the Malwarebytes website to update it this way.
Malwarebytes Pro adds extra protection and I run it along with NS. NS has added an anti-exploit feature with the latest update but don't know how these compare.
Jim Hello It would be better if you ran the free version as a on demand scan.
Curious - I am running Norton Security and also subscribe to Malwarebytes as additional security measures.
Question - Am I duplicating something Norton already does or is this a viable alternative to keeping my system protected?
Certain parts will conflict unless you put exceptions into each program.

https://forums.malwarebytes.org/topic/177751-introducing-malwarebytes-anti-ransomware-beta/ Do NOT install Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Beta on your system unless it is a test system. Information in the link I posted MBAM states, " we do encourage beta users to install the product in ." Sometimes I let my enthusiasm get the best of me when I should advise caution. I have installed the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on Windows 10 (64bit) and Windows 8.1 (64bit) computers with zero false positive results. It is always wise to perform a malware check and removal before any installation. I have to stay with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware because I have the Premium version free for the rest of my life.
But honesty my programs and software are pure vanilla (nothing exotic). Usually, there are three (3) tools that I use to verify a clean system. I've been a little disappointed with not only the misses, but also the cleanup failures. I purchased it back when they offered a transferable (to a new computer) lifetime license for .95.
For now it is free, remember it is a Beta (on my computer it has been flawless, no conflict with Norton). I looked at almost every false positive on page 1 of your link.
The link below will take you to a Malwarebytes Web Page that contains info on Anti-Ransomware and a link to the Beta installer download. I was impressed that false positive reports are answered quickly by Malwarebytes support.
