        Edge 90.0.818.39 drops update error 0x800421F7

        After upgrading Edge (Chromium) to version 90 last evening, I am seeing the above issue on three Windows 10 systems:

        1. 2 20H2 personal/non-managed and
        2. 1 1803 LTSB corporate/managed (from home via VPN)

        Also noticed this new language on the update page on the non-managed/personal systems:

        “Update policies are configured but will be ignored because this device isn’t domain joined.”

        On the managed 1803 system, that language does not appear, but instead, there is a small briefcase icon next to the build number – hovering over the icon reveals the text, ” Microsoft Edge updates are managed by your organization.”

        As I am writing this, the managed browser completed the update check (up to date) without errors. The personal systems are still not reaching MS servers.

        UPDATE: Just as I posted (of course), the personal systems also seem to be reaching MS severs as the update check just completed successfully. Still curious about the new ‘update policies …’ language.

        I just opened Edge, went to the About page, and saw I was on version 89.0.774.77. Edge tried to auto-update, but failed with the same error code reported by the OP, 0x800421F7. I followed the links to the Edge troubleshooting webpage and the error code maps to “The Edge update server is busy”, although Edge itself told me to check my firewall settings. When I tried again a few minutes later, Edge successfully updated.

        Now that I’m on version 90, I’m seeing the same “Update policy” language on Edge’s “About” page, too. I suspect that this is just making explicit the behavior of the underlying Chromium browser code. To the best of my knowledge, you cannot control when Chromium/Chrome updates on machines that aren’t joined to a domain, either, short of making blocking rules in your firewall. I’m willing to be wrong about this, though.

        Edge Policies, including Update Policies, can be checked at edge://policy in address bar.

        Windows 10 Pro version 21H1 build 19043.964 (group ASAP)
