How do i resolve a failure to update. Repeated attempts continue to generate the same error message, "Feature update to Windows 10, version 20H2 - Error 0xc1900223"

How are you updating?
Can you download other updates ok?
Do you use any third party antivirus software? If yes then try disabling it.
Please try disconnecting all non essential USB devices especially external hard drives, downloading the media creation tool, run this & choose to upgrade now.

updated via the usual: Start > Settings > Update & Security > Check for Updates (or after failure, click on 'Retry')
this procedure has always worked for me before.
yes, did disable Norton > Disable Auto-Protect (antivirus), but update still failed.

Tried Windows 10 Update Assistant from https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/software-download/windows10 .
Update SUCCESSFUL, but took a verrrrrry long time.
Suspect the builtin update had timed out too soon, and then 'Retry' would start the update from the beginning, with the same result (instead of continuing where previous attempt had left off). On the other hand, Update Assistant ran successfully to completion.

20H2 is a quick update if you’re running 2004, if you’re running anything older then it’ll run a full update which does take longer.
Perhaps there were some Windows components which were fixed.
Glad to hear all is resolved.
