Hey guys! I had the same problem and after looking around online I found someone with a solution. It worked for me and hopefully it will for you.

 

Open Windows Task Manager, (Ctrl+Shift+Esc)

Make sure the Sims 4 is closed under applications

Then go to Processes

I can't remember what the "image name" was, but under description find the item containing Sims 4 and end the process. My update worked fine and now I can play again.

 

The problem was that SIms 4 was running in the background thus stopping the update.

 

Hope this helps!
