download connections cancelled

I just (Feb 4, 2022) updated quicken to R38.29, build 27.1.38.29 and all of the download settings for my accounts have been canceled. If I look at my account list, all entries for download say no(activate downloads). This is telling me that someone wants me to enter all of the credentials for all of my accounts. I don't think quicken would do this. Is it possible that someone has managed to provide a phony update to Quicken? I don't intend to enter any credentials into this version of Quicken until I know what is going on.

Is there some way I can get back to a known good version?

    Did you use Quicken's file copy?

    It turns off all online connections as part of the process.

    Yes, I did. I'll check my original file to confirm what you are saying. Did I miss the gigantic message telling me Quicken was going to do this? I guess I'm old school, but when I make a copy of a file, I expect to get an exact copy. I've been using Quicken for 25+ years and I never noticed this before.

    It's not exactly gigantic.

    This is a new misfeature.
