Recently I received an email stating ACT would need to be upgraded because of some third party issue. Today I received an email with a download link for 20.0 Update 9. Whenever I try to download and run this update I get a message that the update did not install correctly. When I try to update through notifications the update is downloaded but then ACT closes and nothing happens.

First thing to check: are you a windows Administrator when running the update? IF no, change user. IF yes, run the update with right-mouse-click "Run as Administrator"

You really shouldn't need to reinstall Act. I have updated a number of installations from Update 7 to Update 9 without incident on Windows 7 Pro.
Earlier updates for Act 20.0 can be found here.

Just trying to understand your environment ...
Did you upgrade to v20.0 from a previous version of Act?
Are you on Windows 7 Pro or Windows 10?
