I can't update windows. Error code: 0x80245006. I also use Bitdefender as well as Bitdefender VPN. Bitdefender VPN was just updated.

I suspect that Bitdefender VPN update may be related, but I'm not sure what settings may need to be changed, what specifically those settings are, and where they need to be changed.

    Thank you for posting in Q&A forum.

    There are some services that need to be running for Windows Update. If these services are not started it may cause this error code. Please start them using the following steps:

    1. Click Start and search for Services.
    2. Check the Background Intelligent Transfer Service status, if the status is stopped, click the Start button.
    3. Check if Windows Update and Workstation services are started. If you find them stopped please start them.

    I hope the information above is helpful.

    Best regards
