Got this error when attempting to install the x64 version for windows10 ver 2004:

Windows update "Security Update for Windows (KB5008212)" could not be installed because of error 2149842974 "" (Command line: ""C:\WINDOWS\system32\wusa.exe" "C:\Users\User\Downloads\windows10.0-kb5008212-x64_aef75b014bf6a8b9f858533d9dafb07c6f6fb741.msu" ")

Anyone seen that error code before?

An internet search shows nothing.

    Hi @sj-3826

    If you have received this update from the update settings try uninstalling them and getting them from the update catalogue.

    You can get the updates by KB (KB5008212 ) number from the below link
    https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Home.aspx

    You can also temporarily disable all your antivirus and try installing the updates.

    If this manual update fails you can then try using the SFC & DISM command to check for any corrupted registries and try the update installation after the restart.

    Here is the link for the scan commands
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/use-the-system-file-checker-tool-to-repair-missing-or-corrupted-system-files-79aa86cb-ca52-166a-92a3-966e85d4094e

    If the scan yield no result then try the Inplace update which will surely sort this issue out.

    Hope this resolves your Query!!

    After more research, it appears that the problem is my 3rd party AntiVirus software.
    After disabling the AV, re-running the patch states that the patch is already installed.
    Turn AV back on, a different error when attempting to install the same patch.

    Good luck everyone.

    Afterwards, the PC kept wanting to reboot every time that I run Windows Update.

    Uninstalling the 3rd party AV, and cleaning the registry didn't fix the issue.

    I'm uninstalling kb5008212

    I finally fixed my issue another way:

    1) Perform a disaster recovery using a 3rd party image restore.
    The windows built-in System Restore failed to work.

    2) Manually perform an offline patch after downloading the patch from https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Home.aspx
    I discovered that the 3rd party AV corrupted part of the Operating System itself during the initial installation- Windows update would want to keep rebooting.
    This time around, I completely uninstalled AV, and then manually installed the KB patch which was successful.

    Problem fixed, thanks all!
