When you attempt to install the KB4516065 Monthly Rollup Update (September 10, 2019) on your Windows 7 computer, the error 80092004 appears.

KB4516065 failed - Error 0x80092004

The error 0x80092004 (“CRYPT_E_NOT_FOUND“) denotes that Windows Update has rejected the update(s) because cryptographic values that the update packages contain are not found. It’s because Microsoft started signing packages only with SHA-2 since August 2019. Microsoft used to sign them with SHA-1 and SHA-2 and later decided to drop SHA-1.
