Origin Not Updating

[ Edited ]
★ Novice

Hello, I have been having non-stop issues with Origin from very the beginning, however since the release of SimCity I have hardly been able to play the game due to (on top of all the other problems) Origin refusing to update. I know that this is a wide problem as I have researched online and a lot of people are complaining about it. Origin will not update and as such I cannot go online, and so cannot play SimCity. It is infuriating. It tries to update, I even get an update bar, but it just gives up and dissappears after a while, asks me to log in to Origin, which in turns tells me I am not online because I need an update. I am usually very forgiving of these things but this has been going on for ages now and I haven't been able to play the game I payed £40 for because of an unrelated program. It is unforgivable, I haven't even been able to get my free game offered because of all the other problems with SimCity! Add to that the fact that 90% of the time I just want to play SimCity as a single player experience and it kind of feels like I'm being trolled.

 

So to cut a long story short, how can I make Origin update?

 

Thanks for any help,

 

Simon

Hello flyinbee,

 

The first thing I would recommend is to un-install and the re-install Origin. When the re-installation is completed please make sure that you start the Origin client with Administrator rights (in Windows 7 right click the Origin shortcut and select "Run as Administrator").

 

Regards,

 

Kristi

Hello @CleoCollins123

 

 

Please update your Origin client to the latest Beta version -top left Origin menu, Application Settings - General. Then reboot your PC and try again.Wink

 

And don't forget Oops  ensure that your Firewall and/or Antivirus are not blocking the connection. The easiest way would be adding an exception for the Origin Client,add firewall/antivirus exceptions for Origin and open the needed ports http://help.ea.com/en/article/connection-issues-with-origin/

 

All my best.Standard smile

Mine keeps on telling me that either my wifi isn't working (even when it is) or to try again later. I've been trying almost every day for over a month now, and I just want to play The Sims4 Frown
