Updating Roblox is easy. However, something might happen that can hamper you when updating. If you want to make your Roblox update better, you can try these following methods. Please try the first one and move to another if it is not working.
- Check for connection issues
Apparently, Roblox updates are administered automatically. Since the updating process asks for a free and unprecedented connection, you will have to check firewall and router settings. Roblox needs a stable connection at all times, and it is important to allow it to communicate freely through the Windows Firewall.
Do not forget to troubleshoot the connection. First, use a wired connection instead of Wi-Fi. Second, restart your router. Third, manage router settings. Fourth, disable VPN or Proxy for the time being. Fifth, update the firmware of the router.
- Try updating the game in a browser
This one does not affect the desktop version, but at least you will be easier to determine whether the issue is mutual or it is exclusively present on the desktop UWP version. Actually, updating Roblox in a browser is completely the same as updating in the desktop app. you can just open the Roblox web-client and log in. After the game begins, all available updates will be administered automatically. In case the web client will not comply, it is better for you to clear the cache of the browser and eventually even switch to an alternative.
If you are not sure hwo to clear the cache on the browsers, here are the steps for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. The first thing that you have to do is to press Shift+Ctrl+Delete to open the Clear browsing data menu. Then, choose All time as the preferred time range. The next thing that you have to do is to delete Cookies, Cached Images and Files, and the other site data. Please focus on Cookies, as deleting those is of the most important. After that, click on the Clear Data button.
- Clear the app’s cache
While monitoring cache, you are able to clear the cache of the app as well. All windows apps store throws the application data in order to speed up the loading and preserve particular configuration inputs. However, the cached data usually pile up quickly and it might slow down the game or, in this case, prevent updating.
For those who are not sure how to clear the cache from the Roblox app, here are the steps that you have to follow. First, close the game. second, navigate to C:/Users/(your Windows username)/AppDataLocal. Third, delete the Roblox folder and restart your PC. Keep in mind that you might need the administrative permission to do so. Fourth, restart your PC.
