    Connection Error
    Failed to prepare an update: Cannot download ‘’: Status: 403

    I suspect our corporate firewall doesn’t like automated *.jar file downloads. I’m able to obtain the update file via a browser, but unable to figure out how to manually apply it on linux. Can you offer some suggestions? Thank you!

      Hi Dave,

      we’ll help. We don’t have any standard way of applying patches not from the update dialog. So the easiest path would be to understand why you can download it with your browser but can’t do it with PyCharm. Do you have any special settings in your browser that let you get over the firewall? We could try to tweak PyCharm networking setting first before going with the hard hacky way of manually applying the patch.

    Thank you Dmitry! In Chromium v37 on Ubuntu 12.04 (workstation is soon to be retired with one running v16.04), I get a message when downloading directly stating that “This type of file can harm your computer. Do you want to keep …jar anyway?” Selecting “Keep” allows the download.

    There are no proxies or any other network settings required in my browser. I do however work for a rather large corp that has very strict strong filtering from external sources. I’ve run into this issue in the past with Jenkins updates; since the Jenkins plugins update via java and load balancing redirects, we are not able to download the plugins via Jenkins update GUI and instead have to download them manually in a browser, then install the updates via Jenkins manual method. I suspect I’m encountering the same issue here with the Pycharm service update.

    With that said, I really do enjoy the hard hacky methods, so feel free to share. :^)

      Hi Mike, could you please create a new ticket in providing all logs from `~/.PyCharm*/system/logs/ please also use “Help | Find logs in files” in PyCharm to locate the exact location of your logs. You’ll be able to track the progress of the ticket

    Greetings Dmitry,
    Just wondering if you had any further suggestions on how to get this update since your last comment on March 21st? This page lists “4 responses”, but I’m only seeing 3 comments; is there a comment waiting for approval or an update from you?
    Thank you!

      Hi Dave, sorry for some reason I didn’t get the notification that you replied to me. Most probably because it was a new comment, not the reply. The additional response counted is supposedly a pingback from another blog.
      To the topic: I’ll ask our devs to investigate and prepare the instructions to apply the patch manually.

      Good news. Looks like we have an easy solution to fix it in your case. We can alternate the URL for patch download. For that please follow the link fill the form and give a link to my comment in this blog post. The URL is beeing used for QA and should work for you as well. Support guys will be able to provide you with the link and describe how to alternate it.
