This patch changes the directory, where user must put downloaded archive. Now the installer looks for the archive into user's downloads directory.

That change avoids manual download of PKGBUILD and gives possibility to install package using GUI tools like Pamac (GTK). Also the Downloads directory is valid for most cases, where user must use browser to download anything (by default browsers are downloading files into this location).

+    exit 1

Also the installer exits immediately when there is no archive on the path. Previously the installer was failing on next operation.

One more thing... Not all users will buy upgrade, but they will be notified about possible upgrade all the time. Please consider separate packages for major versions of Mixbus.
