Windows Update: Something went wrong; Try to reopen Settings Later

When you launch Settings and click Windows Update, the Windows Update page may show the following error:

Something went wrong; Try to reopen Settings Later


Cause

This happens if the Update Orchestrator Service (“UsoSvc“) is disabled or missing. This service manages Windows Updates. If stopped, your devices will not be able to download and install the latest updates.

Solution

Start the Update Orchestrator Service

  1. Right-click Start, and click Run.
  2. Type services.msc and click OK.
  3. Double-click “Update Orchestrator Service”
  4. Set its Startup type to “Automatic (Delayed Start)”
  5. Click Start to start the service.
  6. Launch Settings and access the Windows Update page now.

“Update Orchestrator Service” is missing?

If the Update Orchestrator Service is missing from the list of services, you can restore it using the usosvc.reg registry fix for Windows 10 and 11 (last tested on Windows 11 Build 22H2.) After applying the registry fix, restart Windows.
