Update Error 0x80040902

Hi all,

Receiving the error below. I wonder what might cause the issue?


I am experiencing the same issue.

Same issue here in the beta Update failing yet again

Yes, same here. Nightly keeps failing to connect to ‘the internet’ when I pop open the About page.

" An error occurred while checking for updates: Unable to connect to the Internet. HTTP 403 Forbidden. Please check your proxy configuration. (error code 7: 0x80042193 – system level)."


Hmp, thats odd. Well the error 403 is an server error saying the server has rejected the connection because of missing permissions. Is like when you try to login in a site and you enter the wrong password.

Have you tried reinstalling the browser?
You can try also disconnecting your router for a while so you get a new IP (if your ISP manages dynamic IPs).

In any case these, since the type error, the most probable is that is an issue on the brave server where it downloads the update, hope a staff member attends this issue.
