Try Windows Update troubleshooter from Settings > System > Troubleshoot > Other troubleshooters, see if that helps.

@Kapil Arya none of that helped. I've been living with Install error - 0x800f0911 for over two weeks now, rebooting daily. The Windows Update troubleshooter says that issues were detected and resolved. The only issue detected is that there is a pending update. The issue was not resolved and the error recurs every time I go to install the update, which is daily. How to resolve this?

I've been having the same problem. I tried several options in the troubleshooter. Some were not possible because they involved deleting files in paths that do not exist.

@pkabatek I reinstall windows and it works fine now that is the only option use this like for reboot Microsoft support told Download Windows 11 (

if you have win11.

I discovered the same thing. Installing the Windows preview 11 ISO fixed that update, but I still haven't gotten the next major update.

@uitachi100 I feel better now knowing that i'm not the only one who is having this issue.

I have literally exhausted every option to fix this besides a reinstall.

Has anyone discovered another way?

Or do you think if we wait it out Microsoft will push a fix that reintegrates us back into the update cycle?

Happens to me too. It is frustrating....I stop the WU until 10 aug
