Microsoft has addressed an issue related to installing the Windows 10 security update KB5031356, released in October. Some users encountered a problem where the update displayed installation progress but could not complete the operation.
This issue triggered an error message, denoted as “Error 8007000D.” Microsoft has offered a solution for machines affected by this problem.
How to Fix the Error 8007000D
Microsoft has devised a solution to address this issue. An automatic tool will be deployed to roll back the installation that failed. Additionally, a new update will be provided through Windows Update.
It’s worth noting that this solution may take up to 48 hours to become available to all users, including those on business computers. Microsoft suggests using a specific command prompt operation to speed up the process.
- Open the Start menu and type “cmd” to run the command prompt;
- In the right pane, click on the “Run as administrator” option;
- In the new window, type the restore command Dism /online /cleanup-image /RestoreHealth ;
- Wait for the process to complete and close the windows;
- Search for new updates on Windows Update.
To check for the latest Windows updates, type “Windows Updates” into the Start menu search bar and click “Check for updates.”
For corporate computers, Microsoft has provided a “Group Policy” file. Administrators can run this file to fix the error in the operating system.
