Operating systems need to update regularly to fix bugs and close security holes. So if Windows 10 isn’t successfully updating, you’ve got a serious problem. How to fix this problems.
1. Troubleshooting Windows Update
This is a very simple step, but first we must consider it. Windows has a built-in troubleshooter that will try to detect and automatically resolve any issues with Windows Update. To access it, open this diagnostics file from Microsoft. Or, perform system search troubleshooting and select related results. The control panel window opens. Under System and Security, choose to fix Windows Update issues.
2. Clear update download folder
If your download gets stuck or refuses to install during the download process, there may be a problem with the file itself. Clearing the folder where all update files are stored will force Windows Update to re-download, which can help resolve any issues. If you find that some files refuse to be deleted, try repeating the above procedure in safe mode. If you need help, check out our guide to learn how to boot into Windows 10 security mode.
3. Disable your antivirus
In general, your antivirus software should not interfere with the update process, but there are reports that temporarily disabling it can solve the problem. Each anti-virus software has its own disable method, so please load it and close it.
4. Disconnect the drive, disable the VPN, etc.
Try to disconnect the media drive, such as a DVD drive or SD card reader. You can use the system to search for the device manager, select the relevant results, and then right-click the corresponding drive and click Disable to complete the operation. If you encounter a specific error, such as 0x80200056 or 0x800F0922, it may be because your internet connection is down, or you need to disable all running VPN services.
5. Use the media creation tool
If Windows Update still does not work, you can use the media creation tool completely to avoid using it. This will create a Windows 10 installation file, which may be the file you use if you first upgrade to the operating system.
Hopefully, one of the above troubleshooting steps has solved any problem that you’ve been having with Windows 10. If some of the simpler tips don’t work, you can always rely on the Media Creation Tool.
