Windows Update error 0x80073712 and 0x8024200B

Copper Contributor

Good day! 


I cannot upgrade my windows (even though I would like to) due to two errors:


KB5003254: 0x80073712
KB5003637: 0x8024200B


I have tried doing all on my power yet I have been unable to fix them. It is becoming increasingly annoying since I didn't even get the newest release with the local weather taskbar icon.


If you need to know more information about my system, let me know.

Hi @MiguelAngel_Preciado545, you are welcome to the Microsoft Tech Community!

Can you try downloading updates manually through the Microsoft update catalog. I am giving link to your update page in the link below, download the appropriate update according to the architecture and version of your Windows 10.

Want to update to Windows 10 version 21H1 which is the latest right now. Go to this official website and download the update assistant by clicking update now. The update assistant will update your OS.


Yes this is a very good suggestion I also recommend you download the update assistant for windows system!
This results in a great synchronization of the device with Update!

I have tried using the update catalog yet it also came up with an error, no error code this time, however.

I tried using the second link you provided, and I am met with the error 0x800700c1.

You mentioned about following steps to troubleshoot the problem.

Not sure what steps have you done but take a look at the following:
