I’m having this problem trying to age up child sims. I also just installed the update. I tried it with 2 different sims (twins) but had the same glitch both times. I tried it again with new candles and a third time with a new cake but no luck.
Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English

What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansion packs All game packs but star wars Nifty knitting Tiny living Moschino My first pet Vintage Kids room Spooky stuff Perfect patio
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Sims won't age up with blowing out candles on a birthday cake.
What happens when the bug occurs? The sims resets and is still the same age.
What do you expect to see? I expected my sims to age up and they didnt.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. didn't. Newest base game patch before snowy adventure.
I was able to age up before the new update but wasn't able to with a birthday cake after the new update. I even repaired my files and still not able to age up.
I had my Sim's family travel to a different lot, and then he was able to age up. I haven't tried again at my home lot since then.
For those affected by this issue, did your sim have self-assured trait?
I made another attempt where I made a sim and three kids, one with each of the same trait my affected sim had.
Art Lover, Self-Assured and Outgoing.
All three grew up to become teens.
The one who got the Self-Assured trait did not age up after teen though.
Yup having this problem specifically with a Self-Assured sim, who is a teenager, and has had a birthday party and a regular cake after the birthday party. She's at 0 days until age up and isn't aging.
Same issues as others. I'm trying to age up a child (he's 9 days out, but since he's accomplished everything I want, he's ready for teen). Tried multiple times re-adding candles, tried exiting and going back in, all have the transport glitch. This happened after the update.
Also had sim due to age up from YA to adult, on last day of aging up, and same glitch.

Going to a different lot allowed him to age up with the cake normally. Weird, but I'll take it.
