By | December 23, 2020

If you encounter error 0x80092004 while installing updates on Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2, it is most likely due to some cryptography issues (CRYPT_E_NOT_FOUND).

To workaround this problem, you need to manually install the following update(s) :

SHA-2 code signing support update for Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008: September 23, 2019 (KB4474419)

Servicing stack update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1: March 12, 2019 (KB4490628)

Once installed, reboot your computer and then perform Windows Updates again. If the issue persist, try to delete Windows Updates Cache using the disk clean up utility.
