You are not alone.
I just updated virtuemart from V3.0.14 to 3.0.16. After updating VirtueMart the message "The configuration setting 'Enable database Update tools' is enabled. Please disable this for security measures here in the Configuration panel. " appeared. However, in .../administrator/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=config, the option "Enable database Update tools" is unchecked.
