How do I fix the error code 0x800b010e?

Published on April 12th, 2022

This error code is caused by a problem with the Windows Updates service. This service is responsible for downloading and installing updates for Windows. If this service is not running, or if it is not configured properly, you will see this error code.

There are a few things that can cause this problem. First, make sure that the Windows Updates service is running. You can do this by going to Start > Run, and then typing "services.msc". Find the "Windows Updates" service, and make sure that it is set to "Automatic". If it is not, right-click on it and select "Properties". Set the "Startup type" to "Automatic" and click "OK".

If the Windows Updates service is running, but you are still seeing this error code, it is likely that the Windows Update repository is corrupted. You can try to repair this by running the "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth" command. This will check for and repair any corrupt files in the Windows Update repository.

If you are still seeing the error code after trying these steps, it is likely that there is a problem with your Windows Update client. You can try to reset the Windows Update client by running the "wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow" command. This will force the Windows Update client to re-download the update files from the Microsoft server.
