    "We couldn't install this update but you can try again 0x80070541"


    I get the following error when installing the optional update (my current version is the latest 20H2 19042.868), I restart, check for Updates and it keeps showing up in a loop, any hint? Thanks

    Hi, you're not alone with that error number (can be worth searching for the error number and update too). See comments following.

    Often worth looking at the article per update per build in the News section.

    That article, as usual, provides manual download links which you could try.

    Thanks Dalchina and Ronald for your replies. I downloaded the standalone installer and all is good now. Probably as a forum member replied in the Updates section, it must be a server issue with Microsoft. Thanks and greetings!
