I bought Minecraft windows 10 on Microsoft store but it requires a higher version of the operating system then what I have. I have OS version 15603.786 but the required version is 17134.0 or higher.

When I go to the check for windows update there is an option to check online for updates from Microsoft update and I have get this update notification "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1903 - Error 0x80242006". When I click retry I get the error in the title: 0x8024a105. How can I fix these errors and update my computer?

I ran the troubleshooter and the only error I got was "windows could not automatically detect this networks proxy settings". this is what it says with the 0x8024a105 error;

"There were some problems installing updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help: (0x8024a105)"

any help would be deeply appreciated.

  • Usually this denotes a connection issue. Did you restart? Have you tried using a wired/wireless connection instead of the existing internet connection? – Natsu Kage Jan 27 at 9:30
  • what is the difference in connections? – Titaniumammas69 Jan 27 at 9:38
  • when I try to check my proxy settings on inetcpl.cpl its using an automatic configuration script but I can't change it because it says some settings are managed by your organisation. – Titaniumammas69 Jan 27 at 9:40

General Windows Update fixes:

  • Run Windows Update Troubleshooter
    This is done in Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot > Windows Update > Run the troubleshooter

  • Rename the Update folders by entering the following commands in an elevated Command Prompt:

    net stop wuauserv
    CD %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution
    Ren Download Download.old
    net start wuauserv

    Reboot before trying again.

  • Check that the BITS service is started
    This is done by running services.msc, where the service is named "Background Intelligent Transfer Service". Start it manually if it is not started.

  • If none of the above have helped, force the issue by doing offline upgrade to the latest version. For details see the article How to Do a Repair Install of Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade.

  • If the last step also fails, repeat the installation while booting in Safe mode.

  • thankyou so much for the answer but it still doesn't work when I try any of these. The only one I haven't tried probably is safe mode repeating installation however this is because I can't log on when I do safe mode and i have to startup MSConfig on startup and enable them so I can log in. If I hadn't changed the utility manager to a cmd window I would have been screwed. – Titaniumammas69 Jan 28 at 0:53
  • If the last step does not work, the only remaining step is a clean install. But before that, try chkdsk and sfc /scannow to see if they can fix anything. – harrymc Jan 28 at 6:54
