PS4 update 6.72: How to fix error code SU-30625-6!

Update 6.72 is the latest update for the PS4 and for some it has resulted in the unwelcomed appearance of the nasty bugger referred to as SU-30625-6.

This error code is a true urban legend that stops players from being able to update their system.

It lures people into believing that everything is fine and dandy, only for it to then reveal its ugly mug once the latest system update reaches 100%.

To exorcise your PS4 console of this unwanted demon, you can try the official method endorsed by Sony:

  • Completely shut down your PS4 console by holding the power button.
  • Once the system light is off, start the PS4 in Safe Mode by holding the power button until you hear a second beep.
  • Select Safe Mode 3 to update using the internet.

If that doesn't work, a commenter on a Reddit post suggests deleting all notifications and then downloading the update through Settings and System Update.

But, if that still doesn't get the job done, then you might need to manually update your system by following the steps below:

  • Insert a USB into a PC or Mac.
  • Create a folder in said USB named PS4. Inside that folder, create another one named UPDATE.
  • Download the latest update on your PC or Mac by clicking here and save it in the UPDATE folder. Save the download as PS4UPDATE.PUP.
  • Make sure that the PS4 folder is at the root of the USB and not contained in another folder: USB (D:)>PS4>UPDATE.
  • Connect a DS4 Controller with a USB cable to your PlayStation 4 console and plug the USB drive into the system, too.
  • Start the PS4 in Safe Mode by holding the power button until you hear the second beep.
  • Select Safe Mode option 3 Update System Software.
  • Then select Update From USB Storage Device and OK.

If this still doesn't work thanks to your PS4 system not recognising the update file, simply ensure that the file names are correct. All folder and files names should be in single-byte characters using uppercase letters only.

As for other PlayStation 4 system update news, here's what you have to look forward to with update 6.80.
