you do not use the installer for these patches. You download the .rar files, extract the content and then copy paste to your sims 4 install folder in C drive. Copy /paste
when asked, you must let the files be replaced or overwritten. Hope this helps

If you're using my installers then that error message is self-explanatory. Double check you're selecting proper path.

Rightclick on your shortcut for the Sims 4 on your desktop.
Click on Open File Location.
You'll then end up in the folder Game of your install folder
Go up 1 folder higher and you have found the correct path for the Sims 4

It's best if you post a screenshot of the path you are selecting and another one of your game folder opened.

There is another option: you're missing game files. The patch shows that message when you don't have "Data\Client\ClientFullBuild0.package" which is included in base game.

Why not use the all-in-one download - see HERE

Contains all DLC's incl. update 1.42.30.1020 in 1 single folder.

No problems with installation, patches, no copy/paste. Just download, open the download with Explorer or mount in Daemon or Poweriso and play.
