    I am having issues with the update. I had to completely removed Sims 3 of the computer and then I reinstalled it. Now I keep getting the prompt that there is an update available over and over. The update shows up as 1679815570.. Is anyone else getting the same error? And if you are how you did fix it?

    I had the same problem and I actually had to contact EA for them to fix this problem. I don't remember what they had me do but they asked if it was a direct download or physical and some other stuff. So your best bet would be to contact them
