Can't install stuff packs via Origin (solved - thank you)

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

I tried to download Katy Perry Sweet Treats and Movie Stuff from my origin account today but I kept getting this error message: Click Here

 

But my copy of the base game was installed through origin. Please help - I want to install the games I paid for without this hassle. 

Thank you.

this issue is cropping up lately (cancel that ) do not click on the download button in origin  right click the game icon in your origin where you see the  (information) button this will open another window that also has a download button click on that to install i'm sure crin has something about it in her blog will edit this post with a link

I'm having the same error message coming up when I try to install Town Life Stuff and Outdoor Living Stuff. I have tried your advice but it still doesn't work. I've tried to update my sims 3 but the game launcher keeps freezing and won't load properly. I don't know how to resolve these problem. I have even tried updating adobe but it hasn't made any difference.
