On September 20, Microsoft released Windows 11 version 22H2 to the general availability channel. A few days before that, some users received the 2022 feature update early with new devices. The machines were shipping with build 22621.521 (KB5017321) which was indeed the 22H2 update as confirmed later by Microsoft.

Many individuals, however, are reporting of difficulties and difficulties when trying to update Windows 11 22H2. According to these sources, the update is failing with an error code "0x800f0806" when trying to do an in-place upgrade via Windows Update in Settings due to a compatibility issue or something similar. A clean install however is apparently working fine.

Thankfully, a Reddit user namens rap1021 has discovered a solution to the issue. Apparently, manually downloading and installing the update seems to alleviate this problem by trying to do an upgrade via Windows Update. To do this, you must go to Microsoft''s Update Catalog website and download the update.

Other well-known methods, such as running the "sfc /scannow" via Command Prompt, or altering the Windows Update mechanism, appear to be inconsistent either according to the same user, and it''s a great bet.

Another user, CusiDawgs, claims that the latest version of Windows 11 Installation Assistant works. It''s possible to download it from Microsoft''s official website here.
