Error codes in Destiny 2 represent different errors, each signifying that a different type of defect is causing the problem. Some are more problematic than others, some are quite common like the Weasel error code. However, these terms do not mean much on their own. This is a system by which Bungie can determine exactly what issues are appearing in-game for players. The more the Bungie team sees a particular error code mentioned online via forums and social media, the easier it is for them to track down the problem.

Cat is not a particularly common error code. This is because the Cat error only appears when a new update is available, but has not been installed. Usually the game will update in the background and players will be returned to orbit once an update takes effect. However, sometimes the game has an update that it cannot apply while you are playing. As such, the Cat error code appears.

The Cat error is quite easily corrected. First, log out and turn off the game. It should update automatically, so that should trigger the update. It may depend on your platform. On Steam, the game should update itself once you exit. On console, you may need to try relaunching the game for it to check for an update. Once the game is updated, you can play again.

If the game does not update, you may have to wait. The error specifically means that an update is available, so this should be a quick and easy fix. If the problem persists or worsens, there may be a deeper issue and you may need to contact Bungie for assistance.
