We couldn't complete the updates Undoing Changes Do not turn off your computer



  • Rebooted Server 2012 R2. I'm getting the "We couldn't complete the updates Undoing Changes Do not turn off your computer" spinning circle.

    How many hours do you wait to see if it will resolve itself? I don't want to make things worse, but at the same time don't want to wait too long if I am going to need to restore from a backup.



  • I'm a fan of leaving these kind of things as long as possible as they would eventually catch themselves up and return to the previous state. Otherwise if thats no option, you can try logging in under safe mode to find out what update failed then try and push it out manually.



  • Is this a VM on Hyper-V? Shutdown the VM and go to the settings and turn off secure boot. Boot up the VM and try updating.



  • I waited it out... It's all good now. Thanks!



  • Always wait these out.

    The only time I wouldn’t is if I have a snapshot pre update that failed and just revert to it.
