"There were some problems installing updates, but we’ll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help: (0x800f0922)"


This happens if the Microsoft Edge (Chromium) web browser has been uninstalled earlier by the user.

To resolve the issue, use one of the methods below if you’ve uninstalled Edge:

  • Delete the empty “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge” folder. (or)
  • Download Microsoft Edge (Chromium) and install it.

Then, install the KB5003173 (Cumulative Update) via Windows Update or .msu installer downloaded from the MU Catalog. The direct download links are below:

  1. Hi,
    My question is not related to the above topic.

    My laptop has crashed and all repair option have failed.
    CANNOT BOOT INTO WINDOWS OR SAFE MODE -> ONLY recovery mode available and PE (Hiren boot)
    Last repair I can think of, is running : dism.exe /image:C:\ /cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    But I get error that cleanup-image option is not found.

    I think the dism.exe is old version and that’s why the option is not present

    How can I upgrade it from inside PE

    Kindly advise.
