Latest windows 10 update stuck

 Windows 10 is, by and large, a pretty good operating system. Microsoft has gone in hard to keep its operating systems as unified as possible with forceful (though no longer completely mandatory), free upgrades to older Windows and so on. Unfortunately, a possible consequence of Microsoft’s fast pushing of Windows updates means that some of them cause problems.


There are some improvements. You can now uninstall faulty updates and delay updates and other things to give you a bit more control over what updates and patches end up on your system.

But Windows 10 update problems still happen, so we round up the latest ones here and show you how to fix them.

Problems: BSOD | Printer problems

Windows updates are at it again. After a fairly stable February, it looked like Windows 10 had maybe turned a corner, but it’s back to business as the KB5000802 update – an automatic security update – has been causing problems.

The problem appears when you try to use your printer, at which point you may experience a BSOD crash with the error code APC_INDEX_MISMATCH for win32kfull.sys.

According to a report at Windows Central, it occurs specifically when using “Kyocera Universal Print Drivers.”

There are no known workarounds, though Microsoft has announced it’s working on a fix. In the meantime, if you’re having this problem, the best thing to do is uninstall the update. (Head down to the fixes section to see how.)

Problems: Install Failure | Error messages | File Explorer crashing | System Repair Loop | BSoD

Among the first batch of Windows 10 updates in 2021, the above updates were designed to “improve basic functions of the OS” and fix some minor security vulnerabilities and issues with dark mode. However, many users have reported that these updates have caused problems rather than improvements.

The most prevalent problem with these updates is a failure to install them in the first place, with error messages that include:

  • 0x8007000d
  • 0x800719e4
  • 0x80073701
  • 0x80070002
  • 0x800f081f

For others, the updates do install but trigger boot failure, which is pretty alarming, as well as File Explorer stalling.

How to Fix and Avoid Broken Windows 10 Updates

Install Optional “Quality” Update

If you go to the Windows Update screen (Settings -> Update & Security -> Windows Update -> Check for Update), you may occasionally see an option called “Optional quality update available.” These updates are designed specifically to address problems with recent Windows updates and become “proper” updates a few weeks later once they’ve been thoroughly tested.

These updates are still pretty stable, though, so may be worth a shot if a recent update has broken something on Windows 10 for you.

Uninstall Windows 10 Updates

You can uninstall smaller Windows 10 updates (to roll back builds, see the next section) by doing the following: in Windows, go to Settings -> Update & Security -> View update history -> Uninstall updates.


n this window, scroll down in the main pane to the “Microsoft Windows” heading, and you’ll see all the KB and security updates for Windows 10, along with the dates they were installed. Simply right-click the one you want to uninstall and reboot your PC.

How to Roll Back Windows 10 Builds

After every major update, Windows 10 gives you a 10-day window to roll back to a previous version of Windows. It’s a useful feature and should give you enough time to judge whether you have a problematic update. Of course, this won’t recover your files if Windows 10 deletes them, but at least you’ll be on a more stable version of the OS.


To do this, go to Windows 10 Settings, then click “Update & security -> Recovery.” Below “Reset this PC,” you should see the option to “go back to the previous version of Windows 10.” Click “Get started,” then follow the steps to roll back Windows 10. Again, this option is only available for 10 days after a Windows 10 build update.
