I wish to update Xcode with Mac App Store and receive this error

we could not complete your update the server gave an error during download: 403 Forbidden

enter image description here

I am logged in with my AppleID. Other updates working fine, only Xcode not.

Warning: Your Xcode (7.3) is outdated
Please update to Xcode 7.3.1.
Xcode can be updated from the App Store.
  • Are you able to download or update other apps from the App Store using the same Apple ID successfully? – Pixelwiz May 19 '16 at 16:54
  • yes. I did update yesterday – Ivanov May 19 '16 at 16:56

I'm also getting this same issue trying to download it.


This problem is from using a proxy service. In my case it was Privoxy. Temporarily disabling these proxy services would likely help. The problem may arise because of where Xcode is hosted?

Try disabling your proxies.

  • thank. I am also Privoxy user – Ivanov May 28 '16 at 8:27
