  1. Still cant fix the error 2123-1502. I deleted the game, cleared cache, restarted the system and even reset my router thinking that it might help, but still nothing is works for me. Even spamming the re-download isn’t working for me even though it works for others. Is there anything else that I should be trying? If not I guess I have to wait for Nintendo to fix this stupid issue.

  2. Appears that spamming retry download only works if you haven’t deleted the game off your console and tried to reinstall. I was able to install an update to a game, but the games that I deleted off the switch and then tried to reinstall (to try to fix the error code) are not installing with that error fix hack. 😢

  3. Had to try download now About 10 times to do download. Why is my question now since nothing else worked….

  4. Being having this issue recently. Some things I’ve tried is restarting my Switch (by holding down power button) and freeing up system date (such as deleting old data or moving software to SD card, if you have one). Think clearing cache helped too, but also think it helps to cancel and restart the download instead of trying to resume it after trying some trouble-shooting
