The FIFA 23 failure during update process fix error is causing a lot of PC players distress, especially as they are being denied the early access that they have rightly paid for. As this is the first year of FIFA on PC with a proper, kernel-level anti cheat there is bound to be some issues, but being unable to actually access the game is potentially the worst possible outcome. So, to find out how to fix the FIFA 23 failure during update process fix, then make sure to carry on reading down below.

The main route of the FIFA 23 failure during update process error is within the new EA Anti Cheat program, which you might also be familiar with if you've had to solve the FIFA 23 EA Anti Cheat error as well.

This error will prevent you from starting the game, with no indication of what is causing the issue and where you can look to fix it. However, there is a somewhat reliable fix that you can try, that has the potential to solve the game-breaking error.

 

The first thing you'll want to do is uninstall the EA Anti Cheat program, which can be done by heading to the directory folder (found at C:\Program Files\EA\AC\) and finding the EAAntiCheat.Installer.exe file.

Double click on that file and scroll down to find FIFA 23 on the list, so that you can uninstall the program. Then, what you'll want to do is run Origin as administrator, which you can do by locating the Origin.exe file at C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin, and then right-clicking and selecting 'Run as Administrator'.

Then, do the same thing for the FIFA 23 executable file, and this should reinstall the anti cheat program. Once you've done that, you'll want to restart your PC, and open both Origin and FIFA 23 as administrator once again, and this hopefully should fix the problem.

If you're still running into the FIFA 23 failure during update process error though, an additional thing you can do is to disable any antivirus software on your PC and try again. If this doesn't work, the last thing you can realistically do is to keep any antivirus software uninstalled, and then repeat the whole of the first fix to see if that makes any difference.

It is currently on the FIFA 23 Trello board as something that EA are actively investigating, but there is currently no official workaround or fix outside of closing the error message and starting the application again.

So, that's all we currently know about how to fix the FIFA 23 failure during update process error message, so hopefully EA can figure out a permanent solution in the near future. While you can still access the Web App though, why not check out these FIFA 23 starter team ideas to get some inspiration.
