Update 6.72 failure

Created 30/08/2019

I have had the error of 6.72 update is required by the ps4 occour 4 times in the last 2 weeks. I have installed the update via USB, in safe mode, and this has worked once. 

I have had to do an option 7 installation as well, and this fixed it for about 5 days. 

Now it has occoured again, and i have had to perform the update via USB again.

I am concerned that this will happen again soon and i would advice on how to fix this longer term than a few days.

My family also use the PS4 and are annoyed at losing their saved games without warning, on a regular occourance.

    The HDD is failing and needs replacing if the system regularly needs the update installing from USB. For the replacement you will need a 2.5" SATA internal HDD or SSHD if you want a bit more speed with a thickness of 9mm max and storage storage capacity maximum of 2TB.
