My friend had this problem. The only way to fix it at the moment is to keep doing what you were doing. You don't need to delete your character but just keep re-adding the update after you delete it. Now remind you, he did this for a good 2 days to get it
working, and I did it for a good day my self. My friend was lucky to get it after 2-3 times. Its all random on when you'll get in, but once you get past that race mission, your home free.
Mm, hope they fixed the cash cards to, I'm at that point that I'll either replay a mission that gives 9k a lot of times, or just buy a cash card that has a lot of money on it to get what I want at the moment, I'll wait and see how much they cost though..
