How To Fix Yuzu Update Failed To Install?

FIx Update Failed To Install On Yuzu

To fix Yuzu update failed to install, you can update your keys, disable antivirus or add Yuzu to the exception list, and remove old updates and DLC. Additionally, you can use a compatible update format.

1. Update Your Keys

If you’re having trouble with updates, it might be due to outdated or missing encryption keys required for installing game content. Here’s what to do:

  • Look for the newest keys from a reliable source in the Yuzu community. These keys are crucial for the emulator to read and install game updates correctly.
  • Open the folder where Yuzu is installed on your computer and find the keys directory.
  • Once you have the new keys, copy them into the keys folder, replacing any old files if necessary.
  • Close Yuzu, then reopen it. Now, try updating your game again with the updated keys in place.

2. Disable Antivirus Or Add Yuzu To The Exception List

Antivirus software can sometimes mistakenly identify legitimate update files as threats, which can prevent their installation.

Disabling the antivirus temporarily or adding Yuzu to the exception list can help avoid such conflicts.

  • Temporarily disable your antivirus software. You can usually do this from the antivirus program’s dashboard.
  • Alternatively, add Yuzu’s executable file and update files to the antivirus exception list. Refer to your antivirus documentation for specific instructions on how to do this.
  • With the antivirus disabled or Yuzu added to the exceptions, try to install the update again.
  • Remember to re-enable your antivirus software after you’ve finished updating Yuzu.

3. Remove Old Updates And DLC

Old updates and DLC might conflict with new installation files.

Removing these can help ensure that there are no conflicts or corruptions during the update process.

  • Open Yuzu and right-click on the game that’s experiencing update issues.
  • Select “Remove” and then choose to remove the installed updates and DLC.
  • Confirm the removal and then attempt to install the update once again.

4. Use Compatible Update Format

Ensure the updated file format is compatible with the format of the game you are updating.

  • Check if the game is stored as an XCI or NSP file. Updates typically need to match the format of the base game.
  • If the update is in a different format, convert it to match your game’s format or download the correct format for the update.
  • Once you have the compatible update file, try installing it again in Yuzu.
