Is your Marvel's Avengers, Battlefield 2042 Beta or any other Xbox download suddenly halting and saying "Installation Stopped" for no reason? You're not alone. We reported on this story yesterday, but due to a surge of players attempting to download those two games in particular, the issue is ramping up again on social media.

There's no clear reason for why this is happening, and it appears to be affecting all versions of Xbox consoles at different times in the download, although Series X and Series S seem most prevalent. Here are some reports:

As we mentioned yesterday, Xbox's support team has yet to comment on the problem at the time of writing, and there's no sign of any issues on the Xbox Status website. We've reached out for an update, so will keep you in the loop.

Worse still, there's no concrete fix that we've found to get around the issue. If you're having this problem, you can fully restart your console and your download should resume, but you may still run into issues down the line — or worse still, your download might just decide to start from scratch at a random point. Here's how to restart your console:

How To (Temporarily) Fix 'Installation Stopped' Issue On Xbox

  1. Go to 'Settings'
  2. Select 'Power mode & start-up'
  3. Choose 'Restart now'

Alternatively, if that doesn't work, you can perform a full reset with the following instructions:

  1. Go to 'Settings'
  2. Select 'Power mode & start-up'
  3. Choose 'Full shut-down'
  4. Turn your console on manually again

We'll let you know if we can get an answer on this, but in the meantime let us know your experiences down below.
