The latest update for Oculus Rift VR headset, version 1.22, brought a lot of issues besides numerous improvements. Users complained about crippling errors that, for some of them, rendered the system completely unusable.

It seems that due to an error, certain users are stuck in the never-ending update loop and prompted with the ”An oculus update may not have installed correctly” error screen. Here’s what Reddit users had to say on the dedicated subreddit:

”After the most recent update, I’m getting this error. I’m connected to the Internet, and dash loads with my information (name, library) I can even start apps, but home and store won’t load; I’m stuck in the void. Oculus software, which I restarted several times and even rebooted my machine, also has all my information showing. I have no idea how to fix this.

UPDATE: Oculus software kept re-updating, and after about the third time Home suddenly started working again. Hopefully it keeps up but we’ll see.

UPDATE 2: After being in one app, the error is back again.”


”I’m getting the same thing. There’s nothing wrong with my connections, and the Oculus software is logging into my account just fine, but when I put the headset on, dash won’t launch.”


And it’s obvious that this isn’t an isolated case since there are many users who have experienced similar issues after the latest update. They tried reinstalling Oculus software but to no avail. Also, some of them advised to disable Beta or to check the available storage space. However, with all that in mind, we can concur that the Oculus Rift update is the one to blame for the emerging issue rather than users and their respective systems.

We can only hope that the next patch with fix all these reported issues.
