Updates are having an emotional moment

Iron Contributor

Hey all - Just FYI.


I noticed this morning that checking for updates on all my Edge versions - released, Canary and Dev was spitting up an error.


An error occurred while checking for updates: Unable to connect to the Internet. If you use a firewall, please allowlist MicrosoftEdgeUpdate.exe. (error code 7: 0x800421F7 -- system level).Learn more
The error code means the update server is busy.
From Microsoft:

Error 0x800421f7

The update server is busy, try again later.



Hope this helps if anyone else is seeing this.

Seems to be effecting all versions of Edge from Stable to Canary

Yep, all of them are affected.

I had this error on all of my installations, and screw me I was thinking it is my internet acting up :\
You would think someone at Microsoft would have changed the message to somethine like

The update server is busy, try again later.

But instead the message we get is much more serious, scary and of no useful value :)
