Pyobjc Sparkle setDelegate_

I am using Sparkle for my app's update launcher. I need to setDelegate for Sparkle's willInstallUpdate.

The correct method is:
// Sent immediately before installing the specified update.
- (void)updater:(SUUpdater *)updater willInstallUpdate:(SUAppcastItem *)update;
In python, I do:
And I have this global function:
def updater_willInstallUpdate_():
    # do stuff
This does not work. In PyObjc documentation, it says:
"Another gotcha is that obj.setDelegate_() often does not retain the delegate, so a reference should be maintained elsewhere."
I'm not sure how to apply this to my code. I also tried:
delegate = updater_willInstallUpdate_ 
but this did not work either.
Can someone help me out?

When I try to check for updates, I get:
