Windows 11 KB5031455 Update: Installation Problems and Other Issues Reported

The operating system for most computers these days, Microsoft’s Windows, has undergone major changes over the last two years, ever since Windows 11 came into existence. Microsoft now rolls out constant updates to eligible machines to release new features.

They released a similar update last week. However, this update seems to have broken some things for some users.

Some Windows 11 22H2 users are unable to install the KB5031455 update. The download gets aborted after getting completed to a certain level. And in more severe cases, the update corrupts the storage devices which serve the purpose of bootable drives. One unlucky user claimed that two of their SSDs got corrupted.

On the other hand, some reports state that the entire process is completed, but the device frequently enters a boot loop afterward. More problems post the update include games crashing and not starting, the taskbar disappearing, and broken file explorer navigation.

In even more unfortunate cases, many drivers and devices are not working. Overall, the Windows 11 KB5031455 update has been a headache for many people.

The concerned team at Microsoft has yet to acknowledge these issues. We hope they do that soon and provide an update to fix the situation at the earliest.
