Yesterday, Microsoft released Windows 10 build 21364 to Windows Insiders in the dev channel, the build brought quite a few new features such as support for Linux GUI apps, an Eco mode in Task Manager, as well as Task Manager improvements for Microsoft Edge, and more. However, as is common with preview builds, there were also a few known issues to consider.

One such issue was added to the Windows Insider Blog post announcement after the build was released stating that some Insiders were reporting error 0x80092004 when installing KB5001030 – 2021-02 Cumulative Update Preview for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 after updating to the build. As such, it doesn't affect everyone. In our own testing, the Cumulative Update installed before build 21364 did and we have not run into any problems.

Microsoft says they are working on a fix for KB5001030 for a future build, until then there isn't much that people can do since it is no longer possible to officially disable and hide individual updates. However if it bothers you that much, the tool can still be downloaded on third party sites, which will enable you to scan and hide the update so that Windows Update doesn't try to install it each time.
