Origin client login seems to show this page. https://signin.ea.com/p/pc/offline

It shows "Online login is currently unavailable." EA login is currently not maintained well for now?

Hello!

   I have tried everything and it still says "You must be online when logging in for the first time." Is it supposed to work for an iMac too?

Just like previous updates.

 

It all is setup to update the origin installation. The only problem with that is that the "older" installation cannot be updated.

So the update proces is halted half way and promts you with a unknown reason to try it all again.

 

"Unkown" or "not being online (ps strange that you can do anything else online)" or "you need to login" or "X-server down".

Ok ok .. what else the reason is.

 

The real issue is with the update. The program cannot handle the update of itself.

It all would be fixed if origin would provide a full-version update.

 

That would mean a file that is larger and downloads would take longer. But it least it would work at once.

I'd think allot of players wouldnt mind langer downloads of larger files but atleast it all works like a sharm.

 

So yes your download will take longer.

Yes you would have to do something else while its downloading .. (eg. Take your dog outside - No outside that place where the sun shines. No thats a lamp .. Outside as in go throu your frontdoor).

Anyhow the issue is with the auto-update. Or better said with automaticly updateing a program that requires you to login while useing the update.

So update requires the updates and thus it gets stuck.

 

How to fix:

Simple provide full version downloads.

What worked for me was deleting some files from my computer that had been downloaded the same day Origin wouldn't let me log in. just type in uninstall program into your computer's search and uninstall what you don't want. BE CAREFUL YOU DON'T UNINSTALL A NECESSARY FILE!
