Software update won't update successfully for Sims 3[Mac]

Hi,
I am running sims 3 with Late Night, Pets and High-end loft stuff.

I have a Mac running OS X Yosemite and I am using Origin to run the Sims 3 game.

Everytime I go to play the Sims 3 it comes up with a software update available.

So I click update, it then takes hours to update and then nothing happens and it doesn't update.

 

Not too sure what I am supposed to do as I don't want to lose the games I have saved.

Please help...

@Bluebellflora  please and thank you in advance

Thanks for the instruction for the manual patch.

It was a great help...except now when I open sims dashboard it is saying there is a later version of the patch available and to download it from there.

Do I just not worry about it until a new patch is available?

 

Thanks again, really appreciate it Standard smile

That's great Standard smile

 

The up to date patch is 1.67, there are no later ones. Is it a Store content patch it wants to update? If so go ahead and install it.
