PC Build Install: "Some Update Were Cancelled" [Workaround Included]

Jason[MS] started on

Hello Insiders!

We're seeing some reports of the following error message displaying on the Update screen in settings:

"Some updates were cancelled. We'll keep trying in case new updates become available."

We've identified the bug already and a fix is in the works.  In the mean time, the workaround is to delete one registry entry:

  • Click Start
  • Type Regedit
  • Launch "regedit (run command)"
  • Navigate to and select the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\RequestedAppCategories\8b24b027-1dee-babb-9a95-3517dfb9c552


  • Delete the selected registry key
  • Reboot your PC
  • Re-scan for updates

This should resolve the issue.  Post up if you have any questions!

Thanks,
Jason
