Microsoft has recently rolled out another cumulative update to fix bugs and other minor problems following the release of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
However, the latest version named Build 14393.222 has been causing widespread installation problems among users.
Reports have flooded across social media and on Microsoft’s Support forum from users who have been left unable to install the new update, but also unable roll back to the previous version, instead left in an endless loop as the update attempts to install.
Posting on the Microsoft Answers forum, one user wrote:
I have three machines, and this update has failed on each of them multiple times. It goes so far, then says “we cannot install update” and reverses itself. Am good at following directions, however cannot find any definitive advice on this one. Now what???
Another user wrote:
I’m also having an issue with this Update. I’m on build 14393.187. This update fails during install for me and pops an 0x800736cc error.
A user posting on Reddit also reported problems: Third time, no dice. This update really doesn’t want to install for me. Event manager shows error code: 0x800F0922.
Other users commenting in threads on Microsoft’s Support forum and elsewhere online reported that the same issue had apparently occurred when the update was being beta tested.
However, despite this, it appears Microsoft rolled out the update without fixing the issue.
Some users have reported that the update finally worked on the 10th attempt, bizarrely.
Microsoft is yet to issue a fix for these most recent problems.
This isn’t the first time users of Windows 10 have reported problems after upgrading to the latest version of Microsoft’s operating system.
Last week, Microsoft announced details of what to expect in the next major update to Windows 10. The update will reportedly bring a number of new features to both desktop and mobile, including a new time mode, similar to that found on the iPhone.
It will also improve the Continuum feature so that you will be able to connect your Windows 10 phone to any monitor, keyboard and mouse so it can be used as a mini desktop PC.
