Updating via the option dialog on Win 7 x64.

Error: Update installation was blocked, digital signature mismatch.

What does this mean and how to if install the update?

Same problem. Your solution worked for me, too, however...

Now TCMD says "the test version has expired..." and my key is no longer working. Do I need a new key?
The registration key hasn't changed. The key is in a file in "C:\ProgramData\JP Software\TakeCommand.20.0.key" -- did you delete that file (or directory)?

no, I didn't. The key worked fine befor with V.20.17, and does so again now that I have reinstalled that version.

And I see that I am not alone with this problem. I'll have a look again after the weekend.
AFAIK, nobody else has reported a problem with the registration key after an update.

Glad it worked for you. (Especially since I don't have a plan B!)
A possible "Plan B" (also mentioned in another thread):

You could -as a workaround- temporary disable the Signature check:
by editing Updater.ini and then start the update procedure again

Updater.ini
;Flags=PerMachine|ShowConfigOptionsButton|VerifyDigitalSignature
