Hi @Ivan005McGuire 


QuickBooks Payroll Update Error 12152 typically arises due to connectivity issues or misconfigured system settings. Firstly, ensure your internet connection is stable. Refreshing the system and restarting QB often resolves temporary glitches. If the error persists, check firewall settings to ensure QB is allowed access to the internet. Additionally, verify TLS settings are updated to meet QB requirements. Clearing cache and cookies can also help. In some cases, third-party antivirus or security software may interfere; temporarily disabling it for QB updates may resolve the issue.

If problems persist, contacting QB support for further assistance is recommended.
