Some users reported that the Windows 11 22H2 update could not be installed properly
For most users, Windows 11 provides a seamless upgrade experience, but for some users, they cannot upgrade to Windows 11 22H2 update normally. But don't worry, it's easier to fix Windows 11 22H2 installation issues. Users on Reddit, Microsoft Forums, and Feedback Hub have logged the issue.
One user reported: "My update downloads are always stuck at 0%". Another user reported: "I can't install this update, but trying again gives 0x8007001f error". There were similar reports on social media, where one user said: "I have a Lenovo ThinkPad Carbon X1 Gen 8 that is fully eligible for the upgrade, but cannot upgrade to the 22H2".
Often, stuck Windows 11 version 22H2 updates are the result of driver/software conflicts, missing updates, or cached Windows update files causing the update service to freeze during the download process. Even the best hardware can experience installation issues and Surface products can be affected.
Fix Windows 11 22H2 installation issues
keep waiting for a few hours
If Windows Update appears to be stuck on a certain progress, it may actually be running in the background, so the actual upgrade may take longer than usual. In some cases, Windows 11 systems wait a few hours before performing the update.
You need to make sure the update is really stuck. According to reports, users allow downloads to run for up to 3 hours. We recommend waiting a few hours, especially for older machines. The download size is apparently close to 4GB, which may seem extreme, but the installation might work if you wait.
Force update via installation media
If the update does not take effect, then you can download the Windows 11 22H2 image to perform the update manually. Remember, it's best to wait a month before installing major feature updates like 22H2, as some big features like file manager tabbing will go live in October of this year.
