Hi everyone! You might have an issue with your Windows PC is failing to install an update, so, let’s take a look at a few different ways to fix this specific issue!

Restart PC

The first thing I would recommend doing is restarting your PC, I’ve said this many times before, you wouldn’t believe how many issues can be fixed by restarting your PC, so, go ahead and restart your Windows PC and try updating again.


Another issue you might be having is with the storage of your PC as well, so, I would recommend going through and making sure you have enough storage on your PC. As I’ve stated many times before, if you’re running out of storage on your PC, this can cause tons of issues on your device, so, go ahead and clear some storage on your device.

Removing External Hardware

Another big thing that the Windows team recommends is removing any random or unecessary hardware you don’t need on your PC, this includes printers, headphones, scanners, or anything else that isn’t needed on your PC. At that point, I would recommend updating your PC again.

There you have it! Did you end up fixing your situation? I would love to hear your thoughts about this!
