    Game that I already own will not install


    Fortnite would not update, so we uninstalled hoping to reinstall. Now it says I own the game but it won't install. When we select 'install' it simply does nothing

    Try rebooting the console as suggested and maybe also check the mobile app to see if it shows as purchased.

    Can you try the following:

    If you can see the partial installation of Fortnite, press the menu button and manage the game.

    Delete everything: The base game, possible DLCs and local savegames (do NOT delete the cloud savegames from all consoles).

    Then hold the power button on the console for 10 seconds. Restart the console and make sure it shows a green boot screen. If not, hold the power button again for 10 seconds.

    Then try to install Fortnite again.
