How to fix Windows 10 update error 0x800f0922?

Windows is a relatively stable OS with an update delivery system that has been refined over a decade of different versions. However, just like everything tech, it still runs into bugs and glitches at times.

In this article, we’re looking at Windows 10 update error code 0x800f0922, its causes and what you can do to fix the problem.


What causes the 0x800f0922 error?

There are several reasons why you might see the 0x800f0922 error while updating Windows. In this case, the following reasons are the most common.

How to fix the 0x800f0922 error?

Here are a few solutions you can try.

Disable VPNs

Improperly configured VPNs can cause conflicts with network adaptors on Windows, whether you’ve set them up manually or using a VPN client that does all the work for you.

In any case, try disabling the VPN and reverting any changes to see if your VPN conflicted with the Windows update.


Disable your firewall

Now, this might not sound like a good idea. Still, overly protective firewalls can interfere with internet connectivity altogether and even with network adaptors such as WiFi cards, especially if you’ve got a third-party firewall guarding you.

The best way to test this is to disable the firewall and check if the update goes through.


Resize the System Reserve parition

There’s a partition on your storage drive that Windows reserves for its internal functioning. If the space in this partition is too less, it can cause problems with Windows updates.

Do keep in mind that the in-built disk management tool in Windows can’t do this operation, so you’ll need some third-party disk management software such as Partition Wizard or EaseUs for the job.
