I hope you are having a nice day!

Look, first of all, you must make sure that you have an internet connection so that the appliance would update, if you ensured that and there is still no pleasing result, then you have to make sure that there is an internet connection reaching the appliance, you can do that by visiting any website on the google chrome that comes with the appliance. Otherwise, you have to seek help from another professional! It should take an hour at maximum, if you have a stable and satisfying internet connection...

And, no, you cannot use the CS50 library without update50...

If all trials fail, I suggest re-downloading the appliance, and to ensure you are having the latest version of the appliance which is 2014's, consider downloading it from the official CS50 link

Have a good day!
