The PlayStation 5 hasn’t even been out a month, but it has been talked about constantly since it’s release. This includes not only for the system itself, but the inability for most people to get one with the stock issues that have been everywhere. Over the last few console generations, online has played a major role in the infrastructure to the systems. One of the biggest ways is through system firmware updates that bring new features and fix things that may have problems. The PS5 has already had a few updates and now the latest of them has arrived with update 20.02-02.30.00.
PS5 System Update 20.02-02.30.00 Patch Notes (12/9)

More specifically, this update fixes an issue that involved data transfers or downloads being cancelled when you had the same thing downloading on a PS4.
