Adobe Photoshop CS6 Update Failed Error


It seems this error is a common one if you are using Adobe Photoshop CS6. I found different solutions for this problem but since this error is caused by different factors, just try if one of these methods applies to you. One way of fixing it is to run the Photoshop CS5 uninstaller and then update Photoshop Creative Suite manually.

To do this, look for the Photoshop CS5 uninstaller and run it. Even if Photoshop CS5 is already gone, it seems doing this clears up the Photoshop CS6 updater problem. Next, download and install the latest update from Adobe Product Updates. Once the update is installed, restart your computer and see if it works.

If this doesn’t fix it, navigate to “~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/AAMUpdater/” and delete the folder named “1.0”. After this, try updating again and see if it works. If this doesn’t work, create a new folder in your desktop. Close all running Adobe applications and then open Finder and navigate to “/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Installers”.

This is the Library folder at the root of your startup disk and not the one inside your user Home folder. Inside “Installers” folder, move all files with “.patch” extension to the folder you created on your desktop. After this, run the update installer and see if it works.
