Fix: Error Code x80240054 While Updating Windows 10

Facing An Error Code x80240054 After Updating windows 10.

I have tried to install Windows 10 twice through Windows Update but received an error code x80240054 both times. Between the installs, I had a reboot and waited a few hours in case it was due to server overload.

There is no 3rd party antivirus and Defender was turned off for the second attempt. My Surface Pro 3 (i 3 4 GB Ram, 64 GB) has enough space according to the installer. I also tried using the Media Creation Tool (64-bit) but that both gave “Something has happened” errors, immediately after clicking “Upgrade this PC now”. How can I sort out this issue?

Users receive this error code while upgrading from window 8 to Windows 10.

An error may look like: –

1. Windows could not search for new updates. An error occurred while checking for new updates for your computer.
2. Some updates were not installed. Failed: 27 updates
3. KB2919355, KB300850
4. Error(s) found: Code 80240054 Windows update encountered an unknown error.
