Hello!
Where did you get the base game from? And how did you apply the update for it?

Hi there! 

I have had this problem once in a while too.
Make sure you use the launcher's "Game Update" tab and refresh until you see 1.57 is available for download. Click on the update button and try updating again.

Hope it helps!

I had the same problem before and all I did was click the update button again. Smile

Hi! I'm having the same problem. I downloaded my file from games4theworld, and have been following the mac guide. I went to update through the game launcher, but got the "An error occurred while applying the update. No patch available for download." I decided to run it again, as suggested, and still got the same error. My version is 1.2.7.1 and the update is 1.67.

Hello,

Please use the manual update instead of updating your game from the launcher. You can found the manual update from here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t3597-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v167-fix-manual-patch

After that, apply Ultimate Fix and let me know the result please.
