This error message main cause is that the date and time on your pc are not correct. This could lead to this error message while Windows is trying to check for updates. To solve this error, go to date and time settings and switch off the automatic date and time. Set the right time and then again switch on the automatic date and time option. Then try to check for updates. This will fix the problem.

Error code “0x80072F8F” may appear either when activating the Microsoft Windows operating system or when installing a Windows Update. The cause of the error is basically related to the computer’s date and time settings and the time zone. It seems like Microsoft doesn’t want the computer to be in the wrong date or wrong time or time zone when activating the operating system or installing a Windows Update.

The error can be encountered on Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. To fix the problem, just set the correct date and time. Try to synchronize your computer’s time with either “time.nist.gov” or “time.windows.com.” On my computer, I synchronize the time with “time.nist.gov” because “time.windows.com” doesn’t seem to work. After setting this up, select the correct time zone for your computer according to your current location.

When you are finished, try installing the Windows Update again and see if it works.
