  • Update Paused...! Won't Resume !

    This is my first time updating my dota2.

    It says update paused, but actually I havent started updating anything (my setting was autoupdate, but now it's not autoupdate and I cant change it into autoupdate).
    When I resume it, it flashes 'update required' and back to 'update paused' again and it wont resume.
    I check on download tab, there is no download.

    I have restarted steam and my PC, but it doesnt do anything.
    I also tried to change download region, but still it wont update
    Any suggestion how to solve this?

    Here's some pics :

    Please help me solving this problem

    No clue, it should be set by default, but have you right clicked, properties, and checked if it says "always keep this game up to date"? I doubt that's it though, or maybe try changing your download region?

        Same problem.


        • #5
          delete some files in the drive you have steam installed or rather dota installed in. i had the same problem today. but i was more aware.

          I can play these heroes all day long.


          • #6
            What files to be exact?

              Same Issue, i have tried to update but it got stuck at 97% and wouldn't move. So i deleted the game and i have tried to do fresh install and it gets stuck at 95% and doesn't move.

              Any solutions so far?


              • #8
                Okay now it says Update Suspended?


                • #9
                  Have you also tried right clicking, Properties, Verify Game Integrity?

                    Have tried everything but i think i have figured out the problem.

                    Apparently when it reaches 95% and it freezes, sometimes message Update Suspended comes up and thats where i think Valve suspended it on purpose because they dont want people to update the game and play it untill the hotfix for the gold glitching is out.

                      same problem here. the update starting, it downloading 3 MB from 10.7 mb, and just stopped. im tried change region, restart pc, steam, but it still stucked.


                      im deleted some random files from "\steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta", and everything from "\steam\steamapps\downloading\", after i start steam, click "install game", and its start downloading the game (not the full game, only 400 mb).

                      warning! maybe other games need the check local files, and update again. (like cod4 modern warfare to me, just check existing files, nothing downloaded)

                          This just happened to me with the Lone Druid patch.

                          Update is paused at 99%. I tried verifying the game cache, restarting steam, changing the download region, resuming the download countless times. It was stuck.
                          I deleted everything from C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\downloading\, and now it restarted the download. Hopefully it will work this time.

                          EDIT: It didn't.

                          EDIT2: I think I solved it for good. I was looking around in the steam folder, and noticed this directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\temp\570. 570 is Dota 2's application id. Inside there were two files: vstdlib.dll and tier0.dll (both part of the Source Engine). These files couldn't be deleted, so I fired up Process Explorer to see which process had opened handles to them. In my case, it was Total Commander. For some reason, they were loaded into TC's process space, which makes no sense to me right now. But whatever. Closed Total Commander, reopened it, then resumed the update. It worked on the first try.

                          This should be added to the Common List of Technical Issues and Solutions.

                            I have it stuck at 94.4 MB. I did chkdsk, cleaned downloads folder and some more stuff i could think of. It always goes to 94.4 MB and stays there, then says Disk IO error. My disk is fine. Anyone have any solutions? I don't think reinstalling would work, but i will try it overnight if nothing else helps. (Also dota 2 test fails to update).

                            EDIT: Changing download region worked!
