    It could be a number of things that cause a error. I am thinking when it checks the files in your game a file could be corrupted, missing. Also somes mods, CC can cause it. I would save my gamefiles and try to reinstall the game try it to see if it helps or patch manually. I hope will be able to resolve your problem and enjoy your game. :D

    We are looking into a solution for this issue and the technical discussions forum has a lot more information that may help you until then. Lots of Simmers are reporting that updating their EADM/Origin to the latest version fixes this problem.

    It is stupid to complain if you do not check that origin is not up to date many people complaining are still trying to use the defunct download manager.

    The problem is EA (or Origin) didn't make it clear that there were TWO updates.....Origin and the game itself.

    A lot of people do not know that and may be program and computer illiterate so in a sense it is not stupid. I do know when I use each of programs. Origins download manager, The Sims 3 launcher they should all tell you that there is a update available. Now the user is given the choice of canceling and I believe that can be one of the reasons for problems. I never cancel because I am program and computer literate and know how to get myself out of a jam. :D

    My thought are that the problems are due to one or more of the following:

    Failure to update Origin first.
    CC and/or Mods not being removed prior to patching.
    Firewall blocking a needed port.
    Driver for network adapter being out of date.
    Proxy configuration incorrect.

    Since for me (also computer literate) I miscalculated the impending thunder storm and lost connection due to having a satellite ISP mid patch download. I paused but did not exit the downloader, waited for my connection to come back online, resumed, went shopping (large DL so had to waste a good hour) came home to find it had patched perfectly.
    Life is what you make it so, make it good.
