Try to toggle DRM off/on to see if that makes Firefox (re)load DRM components.

You can check the Browser Console for GMP related XHR messages.

In my case it was pi-hole (DNS Filter) who blocked the URL redirector.gvt1.com so the update couldn't be downloaded. If you have pi-hole or something similar: check your log for this URL. Some people reported they had an entry for this URL in their hosts file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc). I don't think this happens very often, but might be worth checking.
