Usually, when the system needs online data and is not getting any response from Microsoft due to overload, this happens. It will be solved sometime. If this continues, then it means that the problem is in your system files. You should delete all the corrupted files formed during the half installation of the update. After this, try to install the update again by checking the internet connection. Windows update troubleshooting will also help to fix the issues in installing the updates. You can also rum DISm and restart the system.

Error code “80200056” is one of the many errors you can get when you try to upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8.x to Windows 10. This error means Windows Update service requires data from the server or the Microsoft server but there is no response. To fix the problem, try deleting corrupt update files then try updating again. To do this, open Windows Explorer then navigate to “C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download”.

Delete everything inside this folder then restart the computer. After booting, try updating again then see if this works. If this doesn’t work, try using DISM. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type without quotes “cmd” then hit Enter. In the command prompt window, type the following commands then hit Enter after each command:

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
