Updates Say They’re Completed–but Still Appear?

This is some bizarre behavior I’ve noticed that started around the 6.5 update. I’ll try to update a plugin or theme; WordPress will say that the update finished…but the updates never actually go away. They will sit there and say that they need to be updated again. I can’t tell if the updates even went through the first time. Has anyone else encountered this? Where would be the best place to file a bug report?
