I have a site on which I enabled SSL yesterday. This afternoon, I began an update to Akeeba Backup v2.1.1. The update file downloaded fine, but when it came to extraction, the process simply stopped. Nothing. Previously I had updated Akeeba Backup on this same site without problems, so I'm assuming the change is the SSL.

Appreciate your help!

It doesn't have anything to do with SSL, it's a bug in the currently installed version. You need to do a manual update. The instructions are in the release notes for 2.1.1.
