KB5003173 attention causes problems (fix)
Update KB5003173, released in Patch Tuesday May 2021, is reported to be causing problems for some Windows 10 users.
One of these is a nasty Microsoft Edge compatibility error that stops the Windows Update process, which means that updates cannot be installed and reset automatically.
KB5003173 is the cumulative update for the latest version of Windows 10 (20H2 version, released in October 2020) and the 2004 version (released in May 2020).
During the implementation of Patch Tuesday this month, many users noticed that the installation did not proceed with a mysterious message "0x800f0922" and Windows started the automatic reset.
When you install KB5003173, it also attempts to install Chromium Edge. However, the installation fails when it finds an empty Edge folder on the system disk (C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Microsoft \ Edge \).
This can happen if the Microsoft Edge folder was not removed correctly.
How To Fix Error 0x800f0922
There are two solutions: Manually reinstall Microsoft Edge from the Microsoft Web site and try again to get the cumulative update. Or just remove the Edge folder from the path C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Microsoft \.
This will allow the cumulative update to proceed.
Unfortunately, there are cases where the installation of the update fails with different messages each time and the above solution does not work.
Failure to install the Windows 10 update is always accompanied by an error message and this code may differ. Some users have noticed that updates and installations reach 73% and then fail with a different error message.
If you are one of them, there is no known solution, but you can try to repair the operating system using Media Creation Tool.
It is worth mentioning that KB5003173 installs security fixes in Windows 10 and fixes a CPU usage error.
