Windows 10’s important updates may fail to install, but there’s a fix

Windows 10 update installation

When Microsoft issues Windows 10 Patch Tuesday update with
security patches, it’s usually recommended that you should grab
the patch immediately. These updates are visible if you go to
the Windows Update page in Settings and check for updates.
Microsoft says Windows 10 will automatically download the
update since they’re important.

Unfortunately, it looks like Microsoft has again managed to
break the Windows Update process as widespread reports suggest
that
Windows 10 KB4571756 is failing to install for some users.

Unfortunately, Windows Update troubleshooter, sfc, dism don’t
fix error. If you don’t have the issue right now, it’s possible
that it’ll show up in future, which appears to be the case for
many users.

In fact, some users have pointed out that they’ve been unable
to patch their devices with September, August and even July
updates after Microsoft broke the update process.

According to our comments section, community forum,
Feedback Hub, and other complaints on Reddit,
Windows 10 KB4571756 is failing to install with the following
errors:

“There were some problems installing updates, but we’ll try
again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web
or contact support for information, this may help:
(0x800f081f).”

Windows 10 update error 0x800f081f

And…

“There were problems installing some updates, but we’ll try
again later. 2020-09 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version
2004 for x64-based Systems (KB4571756) – Error 0x800f0922.”

Windows 10 KB4571756 or future updates could also fail to
install with the following error messages:

  • 0x800f081f
  • 0x800f0922
  • 0x8007025d
  • 0x800f0988
  • 0x8007000d
  • We could not complete the install because an update service
    was shutting down.

How to fix Windows Update errors

The good news is that if you get an update error highlighted
above, you might still be able to
install the cumulative update manually using the Microsoft
Update Catalog or Media Creation Tool.

When you run the media installation tool and use ‘Upgrade this
PC now’ option, it will assume that you want to reinstall the
latest cumulative update, which is exactly what you need to do.

This is not a clean install and your files won’t be removed.
Instead, Media Creation Tool will allow you to apply updates
missing on your device. Currently,
Microsoft is offering Build 19041.500 via the Media Creation
Tool, but the tool will be refreshed with Build 19041.508
(September update) by the end of this month.

That’s because the tool is now updated in the third or fourth
week of every month with the latest Patch Tuesday release.

It’s possible that Microsoft is aware of these reports and
they’ll fix the mess with Windows 10’s October 2020 Update,
which is arriving later this year.
