Nintendo is telling me an update is required for Fifa 19. For the record I have tried to install/reinstall the game over 10x with different sources for the nsp. I deleted all my saved game data and I have nintendo servers blocked through 90DNS.I'm also on airplane mode on top of that. Thanks.

its not hard really is it, the game requires XX firmware, you boot that game and your console isnt on XX firmware, so the game is going to prompt you to update to XX firmware.

Updating the firmware also updates an internal list of updates available for games making this prompt unavoidable outside of not updating the firmware. This is one of the reasons why you shouldn't always immediately update the firmware.

    you can bypass the chip by "tricking it" into thinking the power is clean but that kludge simply didn't work on mine

    my old MX518 also had the rubbery coating starting to come off, i can never get it back to un-sticky state, the harder i clean it the worse it seems to get, same thing with the wrist rest on my old keyboard too

    There are ways to sort it but they are unpleasant and expensive. Far easier to do a vinyl wrap/cover in electrical tape.

    Seems to be a more hot climate thing as well; had several in or come out of Africa with that way before I saw it in Europe

    Can also happen if you leave it in a cold, damp room for years and years.
