It updated to Stable 60.0.3255.27
Interestingly, after going through the same process on my Win10 64-bit machine around 15mins later, Stable 58....127 updated to 60.0.3255.40
I had to do the same uninstall/Re-install process for the latest Stable update on my Win10 machine (though didn't need to backup my speeddials this time around).

So the complete paragraph in one line would look like this when finished:
