I don't know how this happened. I was using my pc as always but the next day i found this. Something went wrong try reopening settings later

  • So, did you try re-opening setting later (probably after a day or two) and found the same error?

  • "something went wrong" Geez, You think Microsoft could give additional details.

  • On this page of the Microsoft website you can find the Update Assistant and a tool to create a bootable installation media (USB or DVD)

  1. Simply go to CMD and run it as administrator
  2. Now write " SFC /scannow " wait for 2 to 5 seconds
  3. Check if "Update Orchestrator Service" is set to "disabled" and change to "Auto" ( Windows update bloker 1.1 can disable this service but not re-enable fixed in 1.5 )
  4. After the scan completes, clean boots your PC ( For clean boot help: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/929135/how-to-perform-a-clean-boot-in-windows ) !

Simply use this 3rd party tool, StopUpdates10

Once downloaded and installed, just run StopUpdates10 and press the [Restore Windows Update] button and wait for the confirmation message to appear that says "Windows Update is not blocked" Once confirmed, just close the app and check Windows Update if it's been fixed and restored.

  • The author of the question wants to update Windows. How does this answer their question?

  • Well, you can't get convenience updates from Microsoft if Windows Update is blocked and for some reason the [Check for updates] button is inaccessible. That's why I share this pretty nifty 3rd party tool from Greatis to restore the Windows Update feature as it used to be. Just like Windows Update feature, this tool can also control updates. But the sole purpose for this post, is to provide a hassle-free aid for Windows Update issue that says "Something went wrong. Try to reopen settings later" on Windows Update. And as for me, this tool is the simplest mean to mend this issue in particular. Sep 8, 2020 at 23:37
  • @PrecastClockDJCami Hi! Even if your answer is correct you have not explained how to use this 3rd party tool so I don't know if this is useful. Also the problem was fixed automatically without the use of any third party tools and since then I am unable to recreate the problem. So even if your answer is correct I can't verify it. Here I would like to like to ask for help from other contributors out there to comment if this fix worked or not. But even before that please make the answer more explicit else I'll have to flag it.

  • It's pretty self explanatory i guess. It doesn't need a detailed instructions on how to use it. You just simply download the app/tool, install, run, then press [Restore Windows Update], wait for the confirmation message to appear that says Windows Update is not blocked. Once confirmed, you'll just simply close the app after that and check Windows Update to see if the StopUpdates10 app restored the Windows Update as it used to be. Sep 14, 2020 at 2:57
