Sony recently released the new PS4 5.0 firmware which contained most of the features, that fans from all over the world requested, but at the same time, it also brought an Error E-801809A8. This error prevents the users from downloading the latest available update putting all the blame on some faulty blue ray disc drive. The problem has been there since for more than a week now and there is no effort from the company till now.
However, reports from different sources tell us that Sony is actually aware of this error and the developers are still working on this issue. They are looking for a fix to release soon as they wrote in their PlayStation Forum:
