Teach the updater to resume interrupted updates

When an update is interrupted, the update/ directory is still in place. The Updater therefore would refuse to launch wihtout a restart, and -- what is worse -- a restart of ImageJ would copy the (possibly incomplete) files into place.

Teach the Updater to detect when an update was interrupted and re-checksum the downloaded files, delete the incomplete ones, and continue.

Teach the launcher to ignore incomplete update/ directories (best bet: use a different name until the update is done, similar to the common file system-based locking pattern we already apply for db.xml.gz when uploading).
