Windows 10 May 2020 list of issues

With just a few hours from starting to roll out the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, Microsoft published the list of know issues that may prevent you from performing the update to the Windows 10 version 2004.

The good news is that they detected them before rolling out so if you have any of these problems, you just won’t be able to go ahead with the update.

However, not all of these issues block the installation and if you downloaded the ISO directly, you should check the list below before you start updating.

How can I fix error 0x80072f76?

Did you receive the error 0x80072f76 when you tried to update Windows 10 to version 2004?

That probably means that the Media Creation Tool lacks the permission to run.

Right-click on the Media Creation Tool.exe and select Properties. Next, click on General and at the bottom, and select Unblock. Press Apply, then OK.

For any other Windows 10 update errors, you can troubleshoot it at our Windows Update Errors Hub.
