unspecified error is usually related to a communication issue, what your cause is, is unknown at this point, most cases rebooting the PC sorts it.

 

If you find it just doesnt go away you can swap patch methods per this link but it is a new game download

It doesnt say there is an error just the Play button is dull and cant be clicked.

The play button does not light up until patching is complete

 

there is a launcher log that would indicate what is occurring, however you may be best just waiting 24 hours too
