since I upgraded to Joomla 3.6.2 I am getting this installation error from time to time - last time wih your latest upgrade:

Unable to detect manifest file.
Package Update: There was an error installing an extension:


Error installing package

but then when I go to extensions, I see that the version is installed. Just not sure if properly.

Can you possibly advise what to do about it?

If you see the 5.2.1 version of that package installed you can just ignore this. Joomla's extensions installer has some weird issues and tends to throw nonsense errors.
