Sometimes it will occur in old katalon Studio versions pls follow the below steps to update your chrome Driver.

  1. open your file explorer and go to the katalon studio location(where you extracted it and using it )
  2. go to configuration\resources\drivers\chromedriver_win32
  3. download the required driver version online and replace the existing one on the location

or update your katalon studio to fix the issue with the chrome driver update.
