How to fix the Outdated Client error in Minecraft

It’s super frustrating when you can’t connect to a Minecraft server. Especially when it gives you the dreaded “Outdated Client” error that some users have faced.

However, there’s a super easy way to fix this issue. All you have to do is make sure that your Minecraft installation is current!

First, restart the Minecraft launcher. This should update your client to the most recent version.

If this doesn’t work, you’ll need to go to the Installations button. Check which version of Minecraft you’re currently running. If you’ve previously used an older installation version to access a server, you may be running an older version of the game. You should either upgrade to the latest version or create a brand new installation.

It’s possible that the server you’re trying to connect to is running a snapshot version of the game, instead of the latest whole patch. In this case, you’ll need to select the latest snapshot instead of the current full patch.

Additionally, any modded versions of the game you’re running could be affecting this, so make sure all your mods are compatible with the server.

Once you’ve updated your client and checked all these steps you’ll be ready to go. You won’t have any problems if you reconnect!
