Update issues are basically the biggest vulnerability of anything that’s powered by an OS. And Xbox One is not immune to them either. In fact, update errors are one of the most common problems with Xbox One a user can encounter.

So, if the Xbox One won’t update, you should act promptly because keeping your console outdated isn’t recommended. And for that matter, we’ve concluded a list of some potential workarounds that should fix the problem, and allow your Xbox One to install updates seamlessly.

What to do if Xbox One won’t update

Solution 1 – Check the internet connection

  1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select All Settings.
  4. Select Network.
  5. Select Network Settings.
  6. On the right side of the Network Settings screen, select Test network connection. The test will run automatically and let you know if there’s a problem with your connection.xbox one wont update

  3. Go to Storage > All Devices > Gamer Profiles.

Solution 3 – Clear the system cache

  1. Press the Guide button on your controller.
  2. Go to Settings and select System Settings.
  3. Select Storage or Memory.
  4. Highlight any storage device, and then press Y  on your controller (you can select any storage device because the system will clear the cache for all of them).
  5. Select Clear System Cache.

  7. Restart your console.xbox one wont update

Solution 4 – Power cycle your console

  1. Open the guide by scrolling left on the Home screen.
  2. Select Settings and go to All Settings.
  3. Choose System > Console info & updates.
  4. Select Reset console.
  5. You should see two options available: Reset and keep my games & apps and Reset and remove everything. We suggest that you use the first option since this option will only reset your console and delete potentially corrupted data without deleting games and other large files.
  6. If that option doesn’t work and the problem still persists, be sure to use Reset and remove everything option. This option will delete all downloaded games, saved games, accounts, and applications, therefore if you want to preserve some of your files, we suggest that you back them up before using this option.xbox one wont update
