Nokia 1520 Windows Phone updates fails

If you are trying to update your software on your Windows Phone and you get the following error:


We are currently unable to check for updates.  (80072f8f)


This may seem like a strange message but most of the time the reason for this is that the date and time on the phone doesn’t match the Microsoft Windows Update Service.

Simply go in and make sure that your date and time are correct.  Also be sure that the year is correct as well.

Once you get that corrected, you should be able to check for updates and successfully communicate with the Microsoft Windows Update Service.

NOTE:  This should be a common fix for all Windows Phones.  Not just the Nokia 1520.  It happens to be the one that I am using for developing.

Hope this helps…
