[Fix] Windows Update Error 0x80d02002 in Windows 10

When you try to install a Feature Update via Windows Update, Error 0x80d02002 may appear on the screen and installation fails abruptly without specifying a reason. For example, the issue may happen when upgrading to Fall Creators Update.

Feature update to Windows 10, version 1709 – Error 0x80d02002

This error may have to do with corrupted Windows Update components, or incompatible software or drivers in your system. Make sure you have the latest versions of your device drivers, and also ensure that the software you use are fully compatible with Windows 10. If you’re unable to determine what’s exactly causing the problem, use these general troubleshooting steps first.

Solution 1: Reset Windows Update Components

Follow these steps to reset the Windows update components manually.

  1. Open an Command Prompt (Admin).
  2. On the admin Command Prompt window, type (copy and paste) the commands below one at a time, and press ENTER:
net stop wuauserv
net stop cryptSvc
net stop bits
net stop msiserver
ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 catroot2.old
net start wuauserv
net start cryptSvc
net start bits
net start msiserver
  1. Exit the command prompt.
  2. Restart Windows and then attempt to install the problematic update.

Solution 2: Check the Regional and Language settings

It’s possible that your regional settings are incorrect. For instance, you may have the region set for a different country where you visited earlier, and have forgot to update the setting after returning to your home country.

  1. Open Settings (WinKey + i)
  2. Click Time & Language
  3. Select Region & Language from options on left
  4. Verify your Country/Region is correct from drop down list
  5. Ensure the appropriate Language Pack is installed. If it’s in the state of being “available”, click Download and let the system install it from Microsoft servers.

After following the above steps, attempt to install the feature update again via Windows Update. This time Windows Update might tell you the reason why the update installation failed.
