Problem with App updates on MacBook Pro

I just tried to update Google Chrome. After I drag the Chrome icon to the dentition directory I get an error message that the file already exists. I can skip, replace or keep both. If I select replace it will not allow the update. If I keep both a second icon is created with the number 2 after it. "Google Chrome 2" This works but now I have a second copy of the program.
This is also accruing to Plug-ins I try to update.

What is the "dentition" directory?
What if you, after a second copy has been created, delete the first one via CMD+Backspace (the one without the "2").
Have you checked Finder > select "Applications" folder >> GET INFO >>> Sharing & Permissions yet?

I've tried to search for the original file but all I can find is "Google Chrome 2." And if I try to rename it by removing the 2 it says a file "Google Chrome" already exists.

To find system files via Finder, that can't be found via Spotlight:
To find invisible files via Finder:

Great videos.

I was able to find the "Google Chrome" app and delete it. I was then able to renamed the second one.

Thanks.
