I never use beta versions as they tend to be unstable.
Thanks Omar

That's exactly why we don't use them in Patch My PC too :)
You are welcome!

PatchMyPC lists "Mozilla Thunderbird 60.9.0 **(x86)**" as an outdated app although "Mozilla Thunderbird 68.1.0 **(x64)**" is currently installed on my PC. (Latest version: 4.1.0.3 / Definition: 18-Sep-2019).

That means "Mozilla Thunderbird 60.9.0 (x86)" is still installed on your machine, make sure you remove it.

@Omar: Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Sometimes I miss the obvious - shame on me.

No problem :) It happens a lot.
Also I think this was intentional by Thunderbird devs starting from v68
