Windows 10 Update Error: Something Happened


something happend windows 10 update

 

Microsoft’s “Something Happened” error message had gone viral on 29th of July.

Here’s how to fix it:

The solution is simple actually. Your PC’s locale settings needs to be English (United States)

Start > Run (WinKey+R) > “intl.cpl”

Go to “Administrative” Tab > Change system locale > Select English (United States)

Advanced Method  (if the above one did not fix it)

This issue might also occur due to corruption in Windows Update component files. I suggest you to reset Windows Update component. Kindly follow the below given steps.

  1. Press Windows key + X, select Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated Command prompt.
  2. Stop the BITS service, the Windows Update service, and the Cryptographic service. To do this, at a command prompt, type the following commands. Make sure that you press Enter after you type each command.
    • net stop bits
    • net stop wuauserv
    • net stop appidsvc
    • net stop cryptsvc
  3. Rename the software distribution folders backup copies. To do this, at a command prompt, type the following commands. Make sure that you press Enter after you type each command.
    • Ren %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.bak
    • Ren %systemroot%\system32\catroot2 catroot2.bak
  4. Restart the BITS service, the Windows Update service, and the Cryptographic service. To do this, at a command prompt, type the following commands. Make sure that you press Enter after you type each command.
  • net start bits
  • net start wuauserv
  • net start appidsvc
  • net start cryptsvc 

5. Restart your PC and check if it works this time when you try to update.
