How to fix Windows 11 – Error 0x800f0922

I tried deleting stuff in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download, I have .NET framework installed, I have sufficient free space (several GBs) of disk space, tried DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, msconfig restart with essential services, SFC /scannow, windows updater troubleshooter (always finds the same problem and says it has fixed it: WaaSMedicService always found as an issue). Nothing worked.

I even tried installing it manually from https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=5013943, the problem is the same.

Does anyone have an idea on how to solve this?

Error 0x800f0922 occurs when downloading the newest update of Windows 10. It also means that you have less than 500 MB in system reserved partition. You may follow the methods provided below and check if you’ll be able to update your device.

Method 1. Check your Internet connection

You need to make sure that you have an internet connection and if possible, you are using wired connections

Method 2. Check .NET Framework

Make sure you have the latest version of NET Framework installed. You may enable it in Windows features. Here’s how:

Type Windows Features on the search bar and press Enter.
Select Turn Windows Features on or off.
Check any boxes related to DotNet Framework and save selection.
Restart your PC.

Method 3. Turn off your Firewall

We know that this is strange doing, but even Firewall can prevent updates occasionally. Here’s how you can turn it off:

Type Firewall on the search bar and press Enter.
Open Turn Windows Firewall on or off.
Turn off Firewall for both private and public networks.
Save your selection.
After saving your selection, you may try updating your device.

MEthod 4:

If the issue remains even after enabling all .NET Framework feature under Windows Features, I suggest resetting the Windows Update components. This procedure will refresh the Windows Update components and create a new SoftwareDistribution folder for the update files. You will need administrative permission to perform this task.

  1. Download the Reset Windows Update Agent from this page.
  2. Click ResetWUEng.zip and select I agree.
  3. Save the zip file.
  4. Open the file and run ResetWUEng.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions and wait for the process to finish.
  6. Restart your PC.
  7. Run Windows Update.

 

Let me know the results.
