    Windows Update error code: 80072EFE

    I believe I have gotten this error before, about 3 months ago. It's driving me insane. My laptop's updates are probably outdated by about a month by now!

    Help me! Please! I beg of you all!

    Thank you all!

    This error mostly related to problems with internet connections:

    Try suggestions from these link

    You may encounter temporary connection-related errors when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates

    If nothing help then reset router to factory defaults
