downloading update stops, causes infinite loading card database
Loading card database. I tried updating my game and would get around 1000 MB of the download done and it would skip to loading card database. i found a workaround on windows 10. Keep the broken app open then open a new app so you have two windows running. the new window will try to start the install again and you wont lose your progress from the previous window. when the new window eventually freezes open a third window and so on until your game finishes installing.
Tech support gave me this solution, and it ended up working (October 2022):
-Uninstall Magic Arena (use a third party uninstaller like Revo Uninstaller to make sure all files associated with Arena are removed from your system)
-Download the latest .msi file by following this link:
-Either double click this file or execute the following from the command prompt: MTGAInstaller_0.1.4277.956000.msi
-Follow the Setup Wizard prompts.
After this point, I had to run the latest MTGA Installer that you find here: https://magic.wizards.com/en/mtgarena. After installing this time, the issue was (finally) resolved for me. Hope it works for some of you!
