I don't think you lose anything. It seems they renamed .dll to .dlu and installer doesn't delete old .dll file.
This error mostly happens when duplicated plugin file.

But if you want to be sure, you can contact with service center.

Mike, for the moment the only fluids I used is from create->geometry->fluids->maxliquid

Is there any option to create fluids especially from arnold panel and where can I find documentation for that?

And apart the error, by deleting arnoldfluidutility, what feature am I loosing?

I don't see any problems with fluids. What exactly is the problem?
