Every time it reaches 99%, it gets stuck and I get this error number: 80710723Some people said try wired connection, changing DNS, allowing PS3 through DMZ, opening specific ports, restoring default settings, rebuilding database etc. It's not my connection, I took my PS3 to my cousin's house, tried it there same results, but when I tried downloading the update from his PS3, it worked just like normal..
UPDATE ONE: Sony have now clarified the situation surrounding the end of the PS3 production in Japan.
A statement from Play Station confirms that PS3 shipments in Europe terminated March 2016.
It is, however, nice to see Sony take the time to address any latent issues in the older console because it likely still sells for them now that they're profitable to manufacture for them.
The Play Station 2 lived on well after the PS3 was released in the guise of a smaller device, which sold well in Japan and in the west.
