1.67 won't download; game won't play[Mac]

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

I have Sims 3: Late Night, Showtime, and my base game all installed perfectly. I was relocated to China and wanted to install University Life. I got a new laptop (Macbook Pro) and installed Origin on there and installed all my games. Then, I bought UL on Amazon and got the instant code and installed it. Now the Sims 3 launcher opens, but doesn't have the UL icon lit up at the bottom of the screen. I tried to download the update, 1.67, and it WILL NOT download. If I press the 'play' button, the sims 3 diamond thing pops up for a fraction of a second and then crashes. Help??

 

@Bluebellflora  please and thank you in advance
