It is blocked when installing the August 2019 security update
Microsoft is currently facing an issue that occurred shortly after the launch of the latest security updates for the month of August. Like Günter born in his IT and Windows blog Born City writes, is supplied together with KB4512506 or KB4512486 for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 to an error that interrupts the installation with the suggestion code "0x80092004". Therefore, Windows Update publishes "CRYPT_E_NOT_FOUND", so it is not possible to complete the installation due to the lack of a cryptographic value, an important clue to find the origin of the error.
Yesterday we were able to report that there might be problems with the transition to SHA-2 support for Windows 7. Now, once again, the reason for the errors with security updates seems to have been identified. Microsoft started this month with a waiver of the SHA-1 signature and only the shipment of packages with SHA-2 hashes. Born sees in the error code mentioned above an indication that Windows Update fails while trying to read the SHA-1 signature and refuses to install.
SHA-2 alone probably isn't enough
Based on the information currently available, it can only be assumed that Microsoft is actually tripping over the long-planned transition to signing without SHA-1 – on Windows, support for issuing the error code for SHA-only signing. 2 for updates does not seem to be present. In the support fee 4472027 At the beginning of March, Microsoft had already mentioned all the necessary updates for Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and SP2. At the time of debugging it might be useful to check if the updates KB4474419 and KB4490628 are already installed on the system.
As always, the WinFuture update packages, in which we have put together all the important updates in a practical package, are available in our Download Center.
