Windows update error (this may help: 0x80080005)


Hey all.

I’m hoping someone is able to help me out. I’m not too good with tech issues and recently I’ve been getting the following error when I go to update my windows;

Your device is missing important security and quality fixes.
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: (0x80080005).

When I go to click on “Advance settings” nothing opens and my settings app freezers and I have to reopen it. I have done the standard restart my computer, as well as follow YouTube tutorials but nothing is helping my specific issue.

Any help is appreciated!




Go to Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot. and run the Windows Update fixer.

If that doesn’t work, try creating a new a Windows 10 account, do you still have the same issue trying to update?



Thankyou for responding. I tried as you’ve suggested, still had no luck :frowning:



Carefully follow this guide in order to fix Windows Update.

I think you best option is to install the latest update manually, and see if that fixes Windows Update in the future.
