The PS5 error CE-10095-5 can be caused if your game is trying to update while your console is in ‘rest mode’.

Other causes for the CE-10095-5 error code on your Sony PlayStation include;

1. PSN is Down

If the PlayStation Network is down, your console will not be able to perform standard functions. This is due to your console not being able to reach the Sony server.
