    installation of Windows 20H2 has failed 0x80004005

    The installation of Windows 20H2 has failed (current version 1909). After downloading from Windows Update site and ran it, it produced an error code 0x80004005 and suggested to try again. But that also failed.
    The SetupDiagResults.log file shows the following error message
    Error: SetupDiag reports abrupt down-level failure.
    Last Operation: Finalize
    Error: 0x80004005 - 0x60016
    LogEntry: 2021-03-14 08:52:54, Error SP Operation failed: Update Boot Code. Error: 0x80004005[gle=0x000000b7]
    What does it mean and how can I succeed in installing the 20H2 version?

    Windows 10 Version 20H2 will not install the 21H1 update 0x80004005.

    Issue(s) with 21H1 Update

    The Windows update list of installed updates has always been a confusing & incomplete list. I don't think you had a problem at all.
