Why some users can’t download the latest Windows 11 update

The hardware and third-party issues Microsoft is facing are part of the reasons why the new Windows 11 22H2 remains unavailable to many users.

However, researchers have developed solutions to determine why users are not getting the new update to their devices. Users interested in updating Windows 11 22H2 can do so by opting for the Insider Release Track, which provides users with the beta versions of Windows 11.

Adam Gross has a solution for how users can deduce why they are not offered 22H2 by either downloading the PowerShell script from the GitHub website or following a given command that can help unravel the reason why Windows 11 22H2 is not available.

The steps include searching for PowerShell and then right-clicking and executing it as administrator. In a PowerShell administrator session, users are prompted to enter the “Install-Module FU.WhyAmIBlocked -Scope CurrentUser.” Users without a NuGet repository would be prompted to do so and would have to adjust the script policies on their computer depending on the system.

Users then type in “Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted” and enter Y to approve the change, then enter: “Import-Module FU.WhyAmIBlocked” and finally type in: “Get-FUBlocks.”

After the commands have been entered, the results are displayed in the FeatureUpdateBlocks folder on the computer.
