Since yesterday I have this Window Update error on both my Windows Mobile 10 phone (yes...) and my Windows 7 desktop machine.

On my phone I tried to change networks, and changed the storage to SD card or internal, but I keep getting the same error again and again:

  • Error code - 0x80246016
  • Associated message - Couldn't install, we'll retry shortly

I'm beginning to think it could be a backend problem.

Does anyone have any information about this?


Seems to be a Windows Store related issue.

Changing the DNS settings to Google's.

Run Windows Update troubleshooter.

  • Thank you for your answer. It was a Windows strore related issue. It didn't update yesterday and since this morning the service seems to be all restored. – aName Jul 27 '18 at 10:04
