Welcome to the G4TW Forums @boojames28 and sorry for the slightly belated reply,

In that case, simply try re-extracting the contents of the .7z archive file/download, for "Discover University". Re-extract into your TS4 installation folder, and replace existing files when prompted.

Extra hint: did you use one of the follow-up patches for University too? Like the 1.58.69.1020 or the 1.59.73.1020? If YES, then repeat the procedure mentioned above with the patch too. Re-extract into your TS4 installation folder, overwriting existing files.

Good luck!

If you didn't actually apply any of the patches, then just re-extract the "The Sims 4 - Discover University.7z" archive file into your TS4 installation folder, and then try the game again!

The patches are meant to fix some bugs of University. Here are the announcements:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t35656-the-sims-4-discover-university-hotfix-version-1-58-69-1010-obsolete
https://www.games4theworld.club/t35696-the-sims-4-discover-university-mega-patch-version-1-59-73-1020-out-now

Choose one of the two only. I personally recommend the 1.58.69.1010, although the text says it is obsolete. But this patch is more compatible with mods and custom content ... if you use any of these.

Can you try describing your situation in greater detail? Where does it say that something (?) needs to be updated? What does the error message say?

Then go under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4, and find a file named GameVersion.txt. Delete that file, and try the game again.

^you cannot play the University DLC (and any other DLCs that were released after Realm of Magic), when you have the Legacy Edition Patch.

Sorry for the late reply,

Something has come up in the 'background', which we need to address behind the scenes. I can give you a solution here, and although it will be easier than re-applying all those 20+ G4TW torrents from scratch, you will still not like it.

Go to Sim Architect's website and grab the latest available all-in-one of The Sims 4 from there. This will still be - by far -  the easiest solution to do. It's "thesimarchitect.com".
