Gallery Newsfeed stays empty

Problem

There are no entries in my gallery newsfeed when I choose the tab News in the gallery. The List stays empty.

I also get a LastUIException.

LastUIException

</root>

Cause

Unclear, probably some kind of caching error.

Solution

  1. Close the game
  2. Navigate to your windows documents folder (Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4)
  3. Delete the following file: notify.glob
  4. The file should re-generate on the next game start and you’ll also see the newsfeed again.
