How to fix Windows Update errors
One suggested way to update to a newer version of Windows 10 is to use Windows Update. However, this is not a healthy procedure. Sometimes there are errors that prevent your computer from receiving updates.
Use Windows Update to fix unexpected errors
If Windows Update isn’t working, you can use the troubleshooting feature for the most common problems.
To fix Windows Update errors when downloading version 2004, follow these steps:
- Open settings.
- Choose Updates and Security.
- Click on Problem Solution.
- In the Startup section, select Windows Update.
- Click Run Troubleshooter.
- Click on this update (if available).
- Note: OK if there is no such option. It automatically corrects the fix. If the program requires user approval, you will need to make manual corrections.
- Follow the instructions.
- Restart your device.
After completing these steps, Windows Update will be able to download and install the May 2020 update.
If you see error 0xc1900223 and there is a problem downloading the update, there is nothing left to do. Windows Update will try to update again later.
Resolve hardware and software compatibility issues
Hardware and software compatibility can sometimes interfere with the update process. In this case, the root cause needs to be identified and corrected.
When trying to upgrade from an older version to the May update, you may see a 0x80070002 0x20009 error, indicating that the installer cannot find some files.
This is another common problem when upgrading to a newer version of Windows 10 when you can work around it by disconnecting all drives connected to the device, including flash drives (except for installation media) and external drives. Restart the installation after removing all external media.
Eliminate error 0xC1900101
Regardless of whether you are trying to install version 2004 or something else, there can be many errors, such as B. 0xC1900101 or 0x80090011. This may indicate a problem for one or more drivers.
The different error codes are 0xC1900101:
0xC1900101 – 0x2000c
0xC1900101 – 0x20017
0xC1900101 – 0x30017
0xC1900101 – 0x30018
0xC1900101 – 0x3000D
0xC1900101 – 0x4000D
0xC1900101 – 0x40017
If you are dealing with any of the above, try the following tips.
- Disconnect foreign devices
- To minimize errors during the update, it is recommended to disconnect non-essential devices –
- external drives, printers, Bluetooth devices, USB drives, cameras and others.
- They can be contacted after the update
- Update the driver
Updating device drivers to the latest version can also fix a problem.
To find all the drivers you need, do the following:
Important: If you download the update from the manufacturer’s support website, be sure to follow the instructions and skip the next steps.
- Open “Start”.
- Find Computer Management and open it.
- Set up a section with the device, causing the problem. It usually has yellow exclamation marks.
- Right-click on the device and select Update Driver Software.
- On my computer, click Browser Driver Software. You can also select the option to automatically check for updated drivers.
- Choose Browse.
- Select the folder containing the non-zip driver files.
- Click Next.
- Follow the instructions.
- After completing these steps, you should not see the error 0xC1900101 or 0x80090011 when installing the update.
