    Hi @Bi7r ,

    What exactly did you try?

    If you haven't already, I suggest you to read the following article from the Microsoft Documentation:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/install/troubleshooting-installation-issues

    Here you will also find a link to a live support chat, if that did not help.

    Sincerely,
    Ole

    Hi, @Bi7r

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    1. Close the Visual Studio Installer
    2. Delete the Visual Studio Installer directory. Typically, the directory is C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Installer.
    3. Run the Visual Studio Installer bootstrapper. You may find the bootstrapper in your Downloads folder with a file name that follows a vs_[Visual Studio edition]__*.exe 4. pattern. If you don't find that application, you can download the bootstrapper by going to the Visual Studio downloads page and clicking Download for your edition of Visual Studio. Run the executable to reset your installation metadata.
    4. Try to install or update Visual Studio again. If the Installer continues to fail, go to the next step.

    There is also a bit of warning:
    Performing the following actions reinstalls the Visual Studio Installer files and resets the installation metadata.

    But in the end, it reinstalls the VS Updater.
