4. Check installed third-party security or software programs
Check any third-party software installed on your computer (e.g. antivirus, security, traffic blockers, etc.). Some security software programs have been known to interrupt your computer's ability to establish a connection to Shift's server and may prevent Shift from updating properly. If you have a third-party security program on your computer, make sure you've updated it to the latest version, and check the program's support documentation on how to enable connectivity with other apps like Shift. Try temporarily disabling the software and then try the update again.
