anyone else getting an error code when trying to update their wii u??
thanks and please let me know
I am connected to the internet or I wouldnt be able to start the download for the update
my bar just stops a ways threw and and then i get the error code and it says trouble connecting to servers
What exactly is the error code and the accompanying error message?
This is either because you have a weak connection or because Nintendo's servers are currently overloaded. The latter case is more likely given other people's issues right now, so try again in a few hours.
Unable to find your specific error code. Please search your Wii U error code again, making sure to enter it exactly as it appears.

yes ive done everything above
again I can connect to the internet with the system but when I try to access the update the download bar move just a bit then I get the error message about 3 minutes after
the most common code is the 108-0075 code
ive been trying to update since 7am and it is now 3:50pm my time
ive seen many people able to connect and download the update within 5-10 min
I managed to get part way through an update download before my connection died (my home cable is terrible). After resetting my cable modem I couldn't reconnect and download the update - I would get any number of 105 and 108 error codes consistently. Sometimes the failure would be immediate, other times it would take up to a minute.
Turns out the problem was with my wifi connection. Despite it being set to auto-select an IP and auto-configure DNS settings it was failing to do so. In fact, it was attempting to use an IP that was already in use by another device. Any number of re-attempts would provoke this response - it would never select a new IP. What I did was hard-wire the IP and DNS settings and try again. Lo and behold, it is once again downloading (albeit slooooowly).
You might want to ensure that your wireless is REALLY working via a connection test. The device gives no other indication of reason outside of that screen. Why it returns multiple diffierent potential failure codes during update makes no sense at all when the reason is so consistent and simple.
Hope that helps!
I as well are having a similar problem. On the other hand I have perfect Internet connection but it refuses to update. Tried several time. Nintendos wii u server seems to be working fine like it said on the web site.
If anyone could help that would be great!
What's going on? Can't download first update. Connected to the internet but can't connect to server. We have tried everything suggested on many websites to no avail. Have been trying since Christmas morning - at least 80 times - to no avail. Customer service either won't allow staying on hold or won't answer for over 45 minutes on hold.
This issue has been reported by hundreds of people at least yet no concrete fix to the problem. Nintendo, at the very least, owes us an explanation. I wonder how many will be returned.
I'm stuck in the exact same situation (after first moving forward from other, extremely frustrating WiFi issues...I had to downgrade my router security from WPA2 to WEP for the Wii to even successfully connection test) and have come up with the exact same error codes. Nintendo's WiFi adapters are ridiculously error prone, I have no idea why they would skimp in assuring they work since online play is huge these days and that's a giant weakness in their products' availability.b
The software update continuously backs out for absolutely no reason, it is NOT a connection issue, I even plugged in the IP and DNS manually like many people claim works - but doesn't in lots of cases. Come on Nintendo, back up your quality games with quality hardware and software...this is a brutal process just to update the system.
