  1. Issues installing updates 20H2 and onwards


    I'll keep it pretty short. I have a bad habit of delaying Windows updates because more often than not they brick my computer. Lately, though I've been seeing some issues with it freezing completely and having to hard kill the power to my computer in order to get it back up and running, so I thought I'd update.

    The updates that I had available were the feature update to 20H2, as well as some other updates I don't quite remember. None were downloading and all were giving me an error message. Eventually, I decided to download the 20H2 enablement package and download the update standalone, which seemed to work.

    This did not, however, fix my issue of being unable to install any other updates. The updates I have available are KB4601319 (2021-02 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 20H2 for x64-based Systems) and KB4601382 (2021-02 Cumulative Update Preview for Windows 10 Version 20H2 for x64-based Systems). Both give me a similar error message: "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: (0x800705b9)"

    My Windows build is 19042.685, version 20H2. Here are my Windows Update Logs (CBS.zip). Any help would be much appreciated.

    As a side note, since I have a Dell machine, I was already able to install some other driver updates via SupportAssist, and Geforce Experience took care of my graphics drivers.

  2. Update 20h2

    Hi Wicki,

    I am Sumit, an Independent Advisor and a 3 year Windows Insider MVP here to help.

    20H2 should not be installed right-away on your device - MS said the rollout is only to a fraction of users and would be labeled as an optional update initially. Are you enrolled in WIP?

    You may uninstall 20H2 using the steps below:

    Update History is not showing v.20H2

    Hi Dominic

    I am Dave, an Independent Advisor, I will help you with this . . .

    This is normal behavior in Windows 10, typically when you install a Feature Update like 20h2, the update history is wiped, this is to prevent the user from trying to uninstall an update that was prior to the Feature Update, which would de-stabilize Windows
    10, the list should start building again, when some updates are applied to version 20h2 . . .
