A lot of PS5 owners are complaining about update related errors. Today, we are going to be dealing with one such error in the PS5.
The CE-107520-5 error code is very common and the error code comes with a “Please install the latest system software” message. If you are getting the same error and have no idea about fixing it, you’ve come to the right place. So let us begin the fix.
What is the PS5 error code CE-107520-5 ?
If you haven’t updated your PS5 console, the PS5 error code CE-107520-5 can show up. Typically, this error code indicates that your PS5 is running an outdated system software. But there can be other reasons for the error as well.
Most of the times, the error will not let you connect to the internet.

So, we always advise players to update the console as soon as possible.
Reasons for the PS5 CE-107520-5 Error Code
- The PS5 is designed to get automatic updates and it prompts you to install them as soon as they come out. But if you choose to not install it or, if your console isn’t really connected to the internet most of the times, you will not receive any new update. Not installing an update is the primary cause of this error code.
- As far as other reasons go, one secondary reason for the error code CE-107520-5 is software system corruption. We can see this happen in both the PS5 and the PS5 consoles. System corruption can occur if your PS5 is turned off suddenly in the middle of an update or if there is a power blackout.
- The PS5 servers are down and Sony’s fixing the issue. While the servers can take time to get fixed, you can always check the status of the servers from Sony’s official website.
