Troubleshooting PS5 CE-100009-0 Error Code

Sometimes, when attempting to download and install a digital game or an update patch on the PS5, you might get hit with a CE-100009-0 error, and all it says it “Something went wrong”. That’s not really that helpful, unfortunately.

Thankfully, the fix for this error seems to be relatively simple. This method involves simply uninstalling and completely removing any downloaded content or potentially downloaded files. The origin of this error seems to stem from corrupted installation files.

On the PS5 dashboard, go to your downloads screen and Cancel and Delete any installed content packs. Next, go to Manage Game Content by hitting the options button with your affected game selected.

Now, you’ll want to Uninstall any downloaded updates, patches, content packs, and the like. The point of all this is to basically start from scratch, so once you have everything uninstalled, go ahead and download them again and reinstall them.

With any luck, your redownloaded updates and patches should apply fine this time, and then your game will be ready to go. If the issue persist, there might be a problem with the game files themselves, so you might have to wait for a fix from the developers.
