 I have tried two or three sources. The last was Wall Street online DE default, also used Globe and Mail,Wallstreet Hamburg. Popup says failed to retrieve quote from... Why is it so difficult to have the stocks and funds updated?

What source are you using for the updates?  As Thomas said, some sites,  
such as Yahoo, have simply stopped providing that service, so it simply  
won't work, and there is nothing KMyMoney can do about it.  Some have  
changed the format of what they provide, so we might be able to adjust  
the settings for that source, but we would need to know which source.  
Did you look through the forum as Thomas suggested?  In terms of errors  
- is there really nothing more than "failed to update"?  Is that on  
console or in a pop-up?
