Here are some things you can try if you experience problems installing updates:
- Make sure your device is connected to the Internet. Downloading updates requires an Internet connection.
- If you are connected to the Internet and the updates are not installed automatically, wait a few minutes, then try installing the updates manually. Select the Start button, then Settings > Update & Security > Update Windows, then Check for Updates.
- Launch Windows Update Troubleshooting. Select the Start button, then Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshooting . Under Get up and running, select Windows Update.
Remember to reactivate the firewall and antivirus software once the update is installed.
