Hello I followed all the steps, I checked every forum just to find a solution. Nothing works. While updating Origin, the update stops when it's almost done. A message says: "Your update could not be completed" with a link (that is always broken when I click on it). So I'm stuck in a circle for the past week.
Your help is more than needed!
The first step, checked in Origin/Application Settings/Advanced/Safe Mod Downloading-checked Enable Safe Mod Downloading and do not forget make sure you are the administrator, run the setup file Origin with Admin rights and restart Origin.
Solved your question ? ...please hit Accept As Solution on the post they did so others know it worked or have the curtsy to say " Thanks, but it didn't work "

uninstall origin through add and remove programs
run installer from their website
good to go
I was having the EXACT same issue as everybody until I followed the steps above. Simple and to the point.
Please try the steps below:
- Manually uninstall Origin
- Run CCleaner
- Do a Clean Boot
- Download the latest version of Origin and install the client
- Add firewall/antivirus exceptions for Origin and open the needed ports
- When starting Origin, please make sure to run it as Administrator
After all this please try running Origin again.
Dont work have done all steps several times, without any result at all, still the same update error
i have reinstalled it many times, done all steps and all that guff and still see no end to this cycle of boredom. nothing has changed. still the same error, still the same stuff. only clue i have is that it probably has something to do with my windows being windows 7. that's all. and even that may not be the right answer. me being annoyed would be an understatement.
