Problems with updating/update errors:

 

Ok, don't lynch me if this doesn't work, I make no promises, but it's worth a try.

 

 It should fix some of the problems people have been having, but I can't vouch for it fixing all.

 

If nothing else it verifies that every option to update has been tried.

 

First thing to do is, on your PS4;


(1) go to Notifications then
(2) press options and select Downloads
(3) Delete the system software update.

 

Ok, now that's gone, make sure you've not got any apps running, then;


(4) go to Settings/ system software update and try
(5) "update using internet"

 

If you still have problems then download the update to usb and try the whole thing from steps (1) - (4) but instead of (5) choose "update from USB storage device"

 

 

If you still have the problem then repeat steps (1) (2) and (3) then power off and go into safe mode (press and hold the power button on the PS4 until you hear a second beep, then let go)

 

When in safe mode, again, first try "update using Internet"

 

If you're still getting problems then, once again, run through steps 1-3, enter safe mode and select "update from USB storage device"

Thanks for bricking my console!

Why is there no way to resole this on the console WITHOUT fully resetting back to factory settings? Why is there no way to access the console and remove the old update or corrupted update and force the console to update correctly? 

 

I have tried restarting in safe mode. I have tried installing the update from USB and from the Internet and tried rebuilding the database AND reinitiallising the console. My last resort is to re initialise it and wipe the hard drive and to be honest, I doubt it's gonna fix the issue. 

 

*****, Sony! Get your finger out and fix the damn problem so your gamers can actually use their console WITHOUT having it as an expensive paper weight because you didn't check it for bugs or these possible issues before you released the damn thing!

 

Get it sorted and stop causing us problems !

I have the same problem but I'm not going to try anything with my console until this is fixed and I tried the USB thing but if it doesn't work then that's what I'm gonna do, you're right, I'm not risking all of my data just so it doesn't work

Mine wasn't either. What I did was the USB update, which also gave me an error BUT after i updated it I put it back in safe mode and pressed the restart. It started back with the error but I was able to press "Okay" and it restarted itself and worked. Hopefully this helps someone.

My PS4 forced me out of my current game when the download for this update started and won't let me continue using the still-running application or do anything until it is finished. Never had that happen before lol.

Ok.. this happened once to me

first.. can you use the controller to power off your console?

if not switch off router and let the system auto find your settings.. this should restart the process for you.

if not.. hold down the off switch on console and hard reset.

not ideal but if it’s the only option then do so.

good luck
