A few days ago, Microsoft officially released the Windows 10 20H2 update. When updating from older versions of the operating system, errors may appear which we will see when attempting to install the October 2020 update. At Microsofters we are doing a review of all.
After seeing how to fix error 0x800F0922, it’s time to tackle 0x80073712. This error, which we can see while updating to Windows 10 version 20H2, is caused by the missing or corrupted one of the installation files. The solution is therefore to erase the temporary files of Windows Update.
Solution to Windows 10 20H2 error 0x80073712
Open the Settings app. We go to System> Storage. In the Storage section, click Temporary files.
We uncheck all the boxes selected by default. We check the Clean up Windows Updates box.
Click Delete Files.
As we can see, in just few steps we can resolve the error 0x80073712 while updating to the latest version of Windows 10. Then we will have to go to Windows Update and click on Check for updates so that ‘he again offers us the October 2020 update.
If that doesn’t happen, we can restart the computer and try our luck again. The alternative would be to use the media creation tool, which will help us update to the latest version of Windows 10, and which we saw how it works in this article.
In any case, we can take the opportunity to clean all the temporary files that we have stored in the system. In this way, we will get rid of the small payload for Windows 10 and improve the performance of our computer system.
Temporary files are files that the system is using at some point in time, but which have no permanent use for the system. Therefore, we can safely delete them and see how the available space increases, to a greater or lesser extent, in our storage unit.
