Roon Update 1.5 to 1.6

I try repeatedly to update Roon 1.5 to 1.6 and get the following error message after downloading 50%: There was an error checking for an update. Update then stops.

Roon Core on MacBookPro 2013 running Mojave 10.14.2, 16Gb Memory, SSD 68Gb free, Music stored on multiple drives.

You could try to download the package from and install it the “classical way”.

@support another Mac core not updating it seems

Have you tried restarting your Core, or restarting your Mac?

I tried. It overwrites the 1.5 but when I start up Roon it is still 1.5?? Are we not still downlowding 1.5 from the website?

I restarted the Mac, no change, still 1.5 running. Tried to update to 1.6 but update fails at about 50%.

Hello @Herman_Spies,

Let’s try something different here:

I would also confirm that Roon is listed as an exception in your Antivirus/OSX Firewall using these instructions:

Please let me know if that helps.


Hi Noris, thanks very much for the help! I followed your instructions and installed 1.6 successfully. Kind regards, Herman.
