Did you change your Email address lately ?

 

Try the manual patch linked here:

What is your base game version right now ?

To find out, open your launcher and hover over the little base game icon in the lower left part of the launcher. It should say 1.39.

Golly... You seriously need to update! Like seriously...

 

Why are you "stuck"? Won't it let you update?

------------------------------------------------
If your problem wasn't solved and no one has gotten back to you - please either post again (or bump up your problem) or contact EA.

I cannot guarantee that my suggestions will help or solve your problem.

I don't work for EA or have any association with them. I also help in my own free time - so please be considerate.

If your problem was solved - please accept a solution! XP is also appreciated.

Happy Gaming!!

This is the same scenerio we are having, stuck on 1.21 and it will not update.  I have tried to manually update to 1.42 and keep getting error messages.

It's always helpful to post the error messages you're getting.

 

If you have a file not found or invalid file error, try the manual super patch and not the incremental one.
