Microsoft confirms broken Windows 11 update, offers workaround

From PC World: Update KB5034765, an important security update pushed as part of this month’s Patch Tuesday barrage, is turning into a nightmare for many Windows 11 users. It’s wreaking havoc on some Windows 11 machines that were previously working perfectly.

Many users who install this update on computers with Windows 11 22H2 or Windows 23H2 (the most current major versions of Windows 11) are horrified to see that the update or installation process hangs at 96 percent. The installation is then cancelled with the error code 0x800F0922. Microsoft has now confirmed this problem.

The failed installation is part of an already long chain of problems caused by the Windows update KB5034765 since its release on February 13. For example, the taskbar sometimes disappears or File Explorer crashes after installing KB5034765. Some Windows 11 computers struggle with performance problems after installation.
