The process of updating your Windows machine is, unfortunately, often fraught with hiccups and delays. This time around, it’s the Patch Tuesday cumulative updates for August, as some users are unable to install the updates, while yet others are experiencing issues after installing them.
Those on the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1809) were supposed to receive KB4512508 as part of this month’s Patch Tuesday. However, a number of Windows 10 users report seeing errors that are preventing them from installing the update, these being errors 0x800f0982, 0xe0000100, and 0x80073701.
Others are also reporting issues after installing the updates. “Since 1903 my PC keeps randomly restarting. There’ll be a small freeze that lasts a couple of seconds, and then it restarts automatically,” says one Redditor.
Some of these errors could possibly be resolved by using the System File Checker to repair system files. You may do this by running the command prompt as an administrator, and entering “sfc /scannow” into the command line. You might need to do multiple passes to resolve error 0xE0000100, though there is no guarantee this will work. You could also try repairing your Windows installation using an ISO.
There’s no word yet from Microsoft on these errors.
