Clear a Cache Memory

Attempt erasing your computer’s temporary files and cache if the problem persists. Over time, these files might amass and create troubles with Roblox and other apps. 

  • Enter “%temp%” (without the quotes) into the “Run” dialog box (opened by pressing ‘Windows key + R’)
  • Hit ‘Enter’ to remove your cache and temporary files.  Doing so will bring up the temporary folder, from which you may choose and remove any files. 
  • The other way to delete all of your browsing history is to enter your browser’s settings or options menu, and then choose “Clear browsing data”.

Disable Your Antivirus Software

Another alternative approach is to temporarily stop any antivirus or firewall software when upgrading “Roblox”. This might prove to be an effective solution. It is possible that temporarily deactivating these apps will help prevent updates from failing since they can cause updates to fail. You should only make sure to re-enable them after the upgrade has been finished.

Run Roblox as an Administrator

  • Press and hold the “Roblox” icon.
  • Pick “Properties”.
  • Select “Compatibility” from the menu.
  • To run the software as an administrator, check the box.
  • Pick “Apply”, and then hit “OK”.
  • Restart “Roblox” or attempt an update.
Run Roblox as administrator under Compatibility tab

Check Your Web Connection Status

Making sure that your internet connection is reliable and robust is the first thing you should do to repair the update problem. This is assuming that your computer is capable of meeting the essential standards. The failure or stalling of updates may be caused by poor connection; thus, you should attempt to reset your router or modem and connect your computer directly to your internet source via an Ethernet cable, depending on whether or not this is feasible. Attempt to update Roblox once again once you have completed this step.
