This issue mainly occurs due to corrupted cache files that cannot be used by the game, which results in infinite loading of checking for updates. Cache files are created by the game or app to reduce the loading time. Hence when they get corrupted, the game or app cannot utilize them, which breaks the application.

If the issue persists, wait for at least 2 to 3 minutes, then try restarting your computer to fix this issue.
2. Clear the Cache
Cache files are the temporary files used by the game and application to increase the User Experience (UI).
