How to fix the Continuous Non-STop Update Problem with SimCity

1. Go to Program Files\Origin Games\SimCity\SimCityData\Locale\ ( Program files(x86)\Origin Games \SimCity\SimCityData\Locale\ ) folder

2. Check what folders You have here. Probably ru-ru, and one of de-de, en-us, fr-fr. Open Your language folder and copy Data.package file.

3. Paste it to ru-ru folder. Download this file to ru-ru folder also. 

No further steps are required.

No further steps are required if Your language files were copied in step 3.

Update 11th March:

Maxis still have a problem with servers and game code. See here: https://help.ea.com/en/article/reported-errors-when-applying-updates-to-your-installed-simcity-game

The best solution for all problems is to repair, or reinstall the game.
