My Windows 10 laptop suddenly had an error when trying to update Brave:
An error occurred while checking for updates: Failed to cache the downloaded installer. Error: 0x80070005. (error code 7: 0xA043050D – system level).
- Updating from two different network connections (home & work)
- Running the Brave installer to install the latest version on top of what I had. Brave installer returns “Failed to cache the downloaded installer. Error: 0x80070005.”
- Disabling AV software (I only use Windows Defender on this system)
None of these worked, so I uninstalled Brave and tried re-running the installer. Getting the same error (Failed to cache the downloaded installer. Error: 0x80070005.)
So now I’m Brave-less. I searched this forum for the issue, and got four hits - 3 were for Windows 7, and one didn’t specify, but it had no answers (Update and compatibility issues).
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Download and install Brave Windows 64-bit.
Brave installs without error.
Brave Version( check
Not sure about version, but I only installed Brave on this computer a month ago.
