@El-Barton67 has the link for the ONLY method that works to circumvent whatever error is keeping people from accessing online Origin. I tried every other "official" troubleshoot for this problem and nothing worked. For someone who is only having the issue of not being able to get online - do NOT clear your cache! Because then you will not be able to sign into Origin AT ALL because the "first sign in must be online". Just don't do it.

 

Uninstall Origin. Reinstall it from that link. And you'll be golden.

 

EA: Fix this! This is ridiculous. You're holding games hostage. And your support team? I've been waiting over an hour for help with this. This is bogus. Get your selves together! Yeesh.

OMG. YAAAS!!!!! THIS WORKED !!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU !!!! ... i'm not sure what EA has done to their most recent Origin Software, but its bugged. EVERYONE having issues, (If you have cleared your cache, flushed your DNS, reset your LAN settings, Reset your internet, updated Windows, Updated your Universal Runtime, Added .dll files, AND.. ran SFC/scannow.. ANd you're STILL stuck in offline mode, Just uninstall the most recent version of Origin and download the one on this link !!! https://filehippo.com/download_origin/post_download/

 

 I have spent 1.5 days nonstop (except for 7 hours of sleep) to get this working.. and IT. FINALLY. WORKS.. with an old version of Origin !!! This is a temporary workaround. Make sure you uncheck "aoth updates" when you install, and make sure you refuse future updates, until there is one past the most recent, and its confirmed this bug is fixed !!! 

 

 

OHHHHH... and this also fixed the "Please insert a disc into Drive" error also !!! 

 

** I tried ALL of the above multiple times before finding this solution ** 

 

THANK YOU AGAIN !!!! <3
