You normally receive “error 80072F8F” when running Windows Update if the date and time settings on your computer are incorrect or the time zone is incorrect. When you synchronize the clock on your computer with a Time Server on the internet, your computer’s clock is updated to match the Time Server’s clock. This makes sure the clock on your computer is accurate.

To fix the problem, first, check your date and time settings. Click “Start”, “Control Panel”, “Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options”, and then “Date and Time”. In “Date and Time” screen, under “Date and Time” tab, click “Change date and time” and then set the correct date and time. After this, click “Change time zone” and then set your correct time zone.

When you are finished, select “Internet Time” tab then click “Change settings”.

Windows date and time settings

On the next screen, check “Synchronize with an Internet time server” then select a Time Server from the dropdown list. By default, the Time Server is set to “time.windows.com”. Next, click “Update now” then wait until the synchronization is complete and then click “OK”.

In case an error is displayed saying “The peer’s stratum is less than the host’s stratum”, try setting the Time Server to “time.nist.gov” and see if it works.
