Could be an issue with your wifi.  Try hooking it up via ethernet (wired) and see what happens.

I as well as many others have run into this problem. It's not your wi-fi it's the game. This is what you need to do. 

1) delete the dame from your system all together.

2) dissconect your system from the internet altogether. ( simply logging off of PSN will not work)

3) install the disk ( as if the Internet never existed and you just want to play a game)

4) after the disk loads all of its installed content to your hdd, then turn off the game, hook the Internet back up to your system, and press play. 

Now work game will download with out a problem.

I hope this helps

You CAN play the game without being connected to the PSN so that way you wont have to update the game, but updates DO in fact help with any issues the game has
