Discord won't stop updating? Fix it now!

In this article you will find out:

  • how to deal with this issue
  • how to protect your data

Are you ready? Let's read!

1. Examine network connection

Discord will not be able to update or you will experience Discord's update cycle if your internet connection is interrupted. Therefore, check your internet connection first. To do this, you can simply open your web browser and visit any page. If it loads, then go to another solution to the problem. If the page does not load, you will have to find and fix the problem with your internet connection.

2. Is the Discord server online?

You can check the status of the Discord server. To do this, visit the dedicated website that specifically shows the Discord status - If the Discord server is inactive, you just have to wait for the problem to be resolved by the admins.

3. Use admin rights

If you don't have enough rights, you can get Discord update failed loop. Therefore, be sure to run Discord as administrator and try the full update again. To run the program with privileged rights, right-click on the Discord shortcut on your desktop and then select Run as administrator.

4. Turn off proxies

You can turn off the proxy and then reopen Discord to check if it can install updates successfully. So, press Win + R, in the Run window type cpl and press Enter. This will open Internet Properties. Next, go to the Connections tab and click the LAN settings button. Deactivate the Use a proxy server for your local network option unchecked and save all changes.

5. Check if disabling of protection helps

Windows Firewall may be preventing Discord from updating. To check this, you should temporarily disable Windows Firewall:

Press Win + R and open the Run window.

Type cpl and press Enter. You will be taken to the Windows Defender Firewall Settings window, where click on the option Turn Windows Defender Firewall on or off. In the new window, check the Disable Windows Defender Firewall for private and public network settings. Next, you just need to save your changes and start updating Discord again.

6. Work with the update file

If the Discord update file is corrupted, it will most likely cause an update issue. To correct this situation, you should rename the update file. Then, during the update, Discord will download a new copy to resolve the issue.

First, force close the Discord update process.

Open the Run window as shown in the previous method. Then type% localappdata% and press Enter to open the local AppData folder.

Next, go to your Discord folder, find the .exe file and rename it to UpdateX.exe. Close this dialog and try updating the application again. We hope that the problem “discord not updating” will not bother you anymore.

7. Reinstall the app

You're out of luck if all of the above methods don't work. But don't worry, you can always reinstall the Discord app on your computer. In the end, you will still get the latest version of Discord on your device.

You can uninstall Discord using a third-party tool or using the built-in Programs and Features utility. After that, visit the official Discord website and download the installation file. Then follow the instructions to properly install the latest version of Discord on your computer.
