For almost two weeks now I've been unable to play Apex Legends. Whenever I start up my game I get a blue screen message saying the application is corrupted and I'm forced to close. On the rare occasion I make it to the game lobby I see the only thing that hasn't finished downloading is the HD Textures, which never passes 55%, but regardless of that the game will still crash.
I've deleted and re-installed the game multiple times, rebuild my data base through 'Safe Mode' twice, even initialized my PS4 but nothing has worked. Only other option I can think of is to delete my online store data of Apex Legends which is something I don't want to do because I would be losing I've unlocked and achieved since Season 1.
What can I possibly do it fix this error?
Try another download of the game as it may be your network settings/quality is the issue.
It is probably worthwhile using Google DNS rather than your default DNS:
This is preferable to deleting all Apex data, locally and the online storage, which as you say will lose your progress.

I was also facing this issue when downloading APEX about 3 weeks back. Tried everything for good 2 days but to no avail.
Then after 2-3 days tried again and it worked.
Interesting thing to note was that this download was failing post downloading exact amount of data everytime i.e. it would fail at X.XX GB download everytime.
Also interestingly, I purchased FIFA 20 today and I'm facing same issue with it as well and EA calmly passes the buck to PS saying it is their error and quote whatever is written on PS's website with regards to this error.
I personally feel there's some connectivity problem between EA and PS servers and hence this challenge. Sony is playing EA here :P (Excuse me for this but I'm really irritated to the tune that I may not buy EA games again).

My sense is that the solution would be similar as well.
