Fix the most common errors and problems when using Windows Update


Sometimes we can find some problems when running Windows Update in Windows 10 let s see some possible solutions

Since Windows 10 saw the light there by 2015 , there have been several problems that have been encountered with the operating system, problems that have been remedied to a greater or lesser extent over time, although there are some thatThey have given more headaches than others.In fact one of the sections that has been giving more dislikes to the Redmond boys, is everything related to the updates of the operating system and the function in charge of all this, which is none other than Windows Update .And we are referring to the great updates of features or cumulative, the errors that have been occurring in this regard with some users throughout the globe, have not stopped.We must bear in mind that we have a packed very large and extensive operating system functions as diverse, so we can add to the almost infinite variety of configurations to which must be adapted to run in the hundreds of millionsof teams of its users.It is not to justify Microsoft , but it is true that these errors, whether for compatibility issues or for someone else, make some sense.But of course, it is also true that there are errors, and there are errors, since for example the accidental deletion of data that happened in the October 2018 Update , is something inadmissible, for example.However, there are many others that we can solve for ourselves, since they are far from the seriousness of this ruling that forced the temporary withdrawal of that particular update.That is why in these lines we are going to talk about some possible solutions that you can use if you encounter problems when receiving and trying to install Windows 10 updates on your computers when using WindowsUpdateSolutions to upgrade Windows 10 from Windows UpdateTo say that one of the possible causes, at the same time as one of the most common, is that we do not have space in our disk drives to receive and install a new update, more if it is one of the important features that we usually receiveevery six months by Redmond.That is why the solution for this is simple, we will only have to free some of the space we have occupied, usually in unit C. Serve as an example to install the May 2019 Update that is about to arrive in a few days, Microsoftrecommends that we have about 32 gigabytes of disk space to avoid problems of this type.At the same time, in the event that we encounter a problem when downloading and installing a new version of Windows 10, we can also try to restore the folders corresponding to Windows Update.With this we tell you that the bug could be solved by deleting all the contents of the “SoftwareDistribution” folder , which by the way is in the “C: / Windows / SoftwareDistribution” path.Similarly, it is advisable to do the same with the folder called "Catroot2", which in this case is found in "C: / Windows / System32Catroot2".To say that these are two operating system folders necessary for the Windows Update process, since for example when executing this function , the catroot2 folder saves the signatures of the downloaded package and helps in its installation , while the updates are stored in “SoftwareDistribution"Both are used by the update systemautomatic ones, and sometimes it has been seen that reset or removal of its contents has solved several problems with Windows Update itself.

More possible solutions to the problems when updating Windows 10

Another of the steps we can take to solve the possible problems that we could find when trying to install a new update of the Redmond's operating system, is making use of the specific functionality for this, we refer to the problem solver that the system itself implements in Configuration >. Therefore, for this we access this function through the combination of “Win ​​+ I” keys and choose to click on the option called “Update and security”.

Once here, in the menu on the left we find the section “Solve problems”, where we click and, in this particular case, we do not opt ​​for “Windows Update” from among all the sections that we will find here to fix failures of the system automatically.

At the same time it is worth mentioning that when making any changes to what we have mentioned above, it is advisable to restart the computer and return to run Windows Update to check if the problems with the updates have finally been fixed.

Yes, in case we see that Windows Update gets stuck in the middle of the update process, we should also consider n that there are some malicious codes or viruses that are also responsible for blocking this functionality to prevent us from updating to new updates or security patches, for example. That is why first of all, the first thing we will do is run the security solution that we have installed in Windows 10, either Windows Defender itself or any other, to then use Windows Update again.
