Sims 4 Mac will only say preparing download

★★ Novice

I already have downloaded Sims 4 but the new update wouldn't update. I've reset origin multiple times and signed in and out about 20 times. I decided to delete Sims 4 and re-download and now when I try to download Sims 4 it says preparing and then will say download failed. What can I do??

Thanks! I think you're experiencing the current Origin issue posted here - https://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-Mac/Empty-Game-Library-Server-Error/m-p/6938454#M13245

Can you upgrade to a later version of macOS? That should fix it for you.
