Unable to Update Visual Studio 2015

    Question

  • It seems I am unable to update Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition from my computer. When I go to Tools->Extensions and Updates->Updates and click on the bottom option "Visual Studio 2015 Update 2", it tries to bring me to this link:

    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=699386

    But after a few seconds I get the message "Your Internet access is blocked." I know I'm not blocked because I can access other pages. So then I searched for a page about the Visual Studio 2015 Update 3, but when I click on the link to download the update, it tries to bring me to this site and I get the same issue:

    https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=691129

    Though I somehow I managed to download an executable for Update 3, but after it finished it got errors saying it couldn't finish the updates because it couldn't connect to the servers.

    So how can I update my Visual Studio 2015?
