Yesterday, updated TBB (automatically) to 7.5.6 Linux x64.
Today, the default Tor check site (English language), https://check.torproject.org gave message:
"Congratulations. This browser is configured to use Tor.

Your IP address appears to be: *5.79.xxx.xxx*

However, it does not appear to be Tor Browser.
Click here to go to the download page"

From the message, I assume the Tor devs want users to download, verify & reinstall TBB because one check failed?

Question: what is the check process looking for (and where) to verify this is TBB?  Just a list of exit relays?
I got a new identity & tried again - same message.

According to several sources, it's quite possible the check.torproject.org site is down or malfunctioning.

I just did check.torproject.org and as far as I can tell, the site is working properly.
I'm using the same version as you are but Tor Browser for windows.
