Resolutions for error code 0x800F0906

To resolve this problem, try to connect to the Microsoft Update

(http://www.update.microsoft.com)

Website.

If you cannot access this website, check your Internet connection, or contact the network administrator to determine whether there is a configuration that blocks access to the website.

This behavior can also be caused by a system administrator who configures the computer to use Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) instead of the Microsoft Windows Update server for servicing. In this case, contact your system administrator and request that they enable the Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair Group Policy setting and configure the Alternate source file path value or select the Contact Windows Update directly to download repair content instead of Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) option.

Local Group policy
To configure the Group Policy setting, follow these steps:

  1. Start the Local Group Policy Editor or Group Policy Management Console.

    Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012: Point to the upper-right corner of the screen, click Search, type group policy, click Settings, and then click Edit group policy.
