Rocket League gets frequent updates, which is great, though also inconvenient for some Xbox players due to an install bug. Many Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One users encounter the Rocket League update stuck at 100% glitch. This issue prompts a notification message that reads “Finishing things up” but seemingly never goes away. So, is there a quick and easy solution? Here’s the need-to-know on the RL update won’t finish problem.
How to fix Rocket League update stuck at 100%
If a new Rocket League update sticks at 100% progress, first try rebooting the console then pausing and unpausing the patch. After that, wait for a while; some users report that the “Finishing things up” process may remain stuck for several hours before completing. Alternatively, users can close and uninstall Rocket League before re-downloading and installing the game fresh. This won’t cause any loss of progress and could potentially be faster depending on a user’s download speed.
Here’s how to fix the Rocket League stuck patch issue by uninstalling and re-downloading on Xbox:
- Navigate to “My games & apps” from the Xbox home screen
- Locate Rocket League in the “Games” tab
- Highlight the game and press the Menu/Start button
- Select “Uninstall” from the list, then “UNINSTALL ALL”
- Scroll to the “Full library” tab
- Select “All owned games” from the available options
- Locate and select Rocket League
- Choose the “INSTALL ALL” option
- Rocket League should now install without any update issues
In the unlikely event that this fix doesn’t work, as a very final resort, users can perform an Xbox factory reset. Go to Settings > System > Console Info > Reset Console > RESET AND KEEP MY GAMES & APPS. The console will reboot in a state as if it were brand new, though after logging in any game and app installs will remain intact. The Rocket League update should now progress and complete normally.
