nope there is not a program where you can find updates for fpkg games. There is a program where you can download official updates but we can not use it on a fpkg without the passcode.

I'm actually looking for a way to install an update on a legit game disc, so I don't need to download and install the huge base game as fpkg. So I'm guessing I will need a program to download the official update, and then some other tools to apply it. Can you point me to the first program?

You can actually convert your retail game disks into fpkgs and since you have the official disk and can get the latest patches, you should also be able to convert the updates to FPKGs, allowing you to get newer updates than are available easily

though it's better to dl the fpkgs on pc cause iirc the ps4 lan is slower than most modern pc lan even the ps3 had that issue with that package hb and the official way through psn, my isp speed can reach 5-7 mbps (on lan/5ghz) ps3 always capped at 3mbps and idt the ps4 faired any better and some updates ayk are huge far cry 6 is like 50 gb also i don't think that homebrew utalizes rest mode so you could easily burn up your ps4 running it to dl an update for 10 hours straight

This is not for FPKGs.

tbh I would be more interested in an app that stops the game from updating automatically.. updates take so much space

So the way I understand it UNLIKE the ps3 where you could download the PKG files directly from the Sony servers and patch them, that is NOT possible for Ps4 correct? Someone needs to create a FPKG off of their legit version right?

You need PKG passcode

yes. you're basically resigning the games as free, which is what "fixes" were on the ps3. that's why all ps3 game fixes' updates had to be fixed as well, because you can't do anything on either system without the licenses.
