Office 365 update has broken activation

Just a heads up everyone…

I installed an update to Office 2016 for Mac that I use an Office 365 subscription to activate. Apparently there is an issue with the update that is deactivating the software and freezing during an attempted reactivation. Office 365 Support says my issue is not isolated and after looking on Twitter it appears that is the case.

Yep. I went through all the “troubleshooting” steps this morning thinking it was on my end. Brought back horrible PC memories. It did eventually activate… for now. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you! I have this update on my screen and now I’ll wait before applying it.

It’s frustrating but a simple reboot fixes the issue

Microsoft has seemingly fixed the issue. Was able to finally get activation to go through.
