Error in Brave:
An error occurred while checking for updates: Unable to connect to the Internet. If you use a firewall, please whitelist BraveUpdate.exe. (error code 7: 0x80042133 – system level).
I have internet as I’m posting this from my current brave browser.
I have checked umbrella (opendns) protection to see if this is being blocked and it is not.
I have also check our software restriction policies to see if I’m getting any blocks with braveupdate.exe and there are no produced Windows events.
Google Chrome and Edge Chromium update just fine. I would like to know how figure out this issue.
I also get a similar error when I download the installer from brave.com and try to run it. I get “unable to connect to the internet. if you use a firewall, please whitelist BraveUpdate.exe.”
I have whitelisted inbound and outbound in the windows firewall C:\Program Files (x86)\BraveSoftware\Update\braveupdate.exe.
