The simple fix for this problem is to update the software to the latest version. Also, as mentioned above, you should try to turn on auto-updates for all your software if possible.

fix 4: There is a glitch in Roblox software

Software is very prone to glitches, new software is made perfect and there is always scope for error. Especially with the Roblox software where there is a lot of user-contributed content, there is always room for glitches.

This is not a very big problem though, and you can easily take care of it. 

To remove the glitches in the system, what you can do is unlink your account from the Roblox software and then link it back again.

This is the kind of refresh for the system and you might get rid of the other 901 in the process.

fix 5: The Roblox server is down

As you are already aware, to play the Roblox games, you need to have a stable Internet connexion and the server needs to be within reach.

If the Roblox server is down due to many users using it at the same time, then you might face many errors while trying to connect to the server. 

In this case, there is hardly anything you can do except raise a support ticket and then wait, because in this situation when many users all around the world are impacted at the same time, the Roblox community is more worried and getting the issue resolved as soon as possible and you do not need to worry about that.

fix 6: Try to use Roblox on a different device
