Duplicate Accounts Created after Upgrade and Update

I upgraded from Quicken 2017 Home & Business to a Quicken Premier subscription. The install worked fine and everything looked good upon first opening.

I did an update and the update process hung. After restarting Quicken, there are a number of accounts (all in banking and credit card accounts) that had a second account created that is the same name as an existing account, but with a "2" suffix. Some transactions are in each account. All of the duplicate accounts have a initial balance dated 4/30/2017.

I have several questions:
1. What caused this?
2. Will it happen again?
3. Is there any way to fix it other than merging the two accounts?

    Update to say that one whole credit card account disappeared. Also, it seems that many of the affected transactions involved splits or transfers.
