What is Xbox Error Code 0xe0e80000f?

When the error occurs, you can see an error message with the text proclaiming: “There was a problem with the update. You need this update to use your console, but something went wrong.”

Usually, the error will appear when the user tries to update their console.

Why Does The Error Happen?

Microsoft’s list of Xbox errors does not include this problem, but because of the community, we now understate the causes of this error are:

  • Outdated system software.
  • Network problems.
  • External device interference.

How To Fix The Error?

The fixes are really simple, and all you need to do is follow the steps as they’re written. Here’s a list of the fixes before I go into detail regarding them:

  1. Check if there are any Xbox updates
  2. Check your Proxy
  3. Tamper with the Connection
  4. Tamper with the Storage
  5. Check your Internet Connection
  6. Perform a Power Cycle
  7. Contact the support team

Check If There Are Any Xbox Updates

At times the problem can simply be fixed by updating your Xbox OS since new updates routinely weed out these errors. However, to update your Xbox, you must ensure you’re connected to the internet. After you’ve made that sure, you’ll need to do the following:

  1. Select System
  2. Select Updates and Downloads and then go to Update Console.
  3. If there is an option to Update the console, click on it and update it.

Check If You’re Using A Proxy

To update your Xbox, make sure your VPN is turned off. The device typically uses the VPN’s new location to display content tailored to that particular region.

Xbox will be able to identify your real location and will let you update by removing your VPN.

Tamper With The connection

A user reported this particular fix that can come in handy, and many have reported that it has very easily fixed their issue. What they suggest doing is unplugging the Ethernet cable from the Xbox, and using their phone’s hotspot/Wi-Fi to connect to the internet.

This is an obscure suggestion doesn’t make much sense at first glance, but it is plausible that the Ethernet cable had some faults that may have caused packet loss, and to prevent that, the Xbox held back the update replacing it with the error.

Tamper With The Storage

Another fix posted by a user was rather odd, yet seemed to work. For this, you’ll have to disconnect your external storage initially. Next, you’ll need to unplug your Ethernet cable and then plug it back in to restart the internet. Then, you’ll have to plug in the power source and shut down the console entirely, followed by an attempt to update.

This was a fix that worked for many; although it’s still unclear as to how the user managed to figure this exact routine out, which still is a mystery to all of us. But as you may be noticing, many of these have to do with the internet connections, just like my next fix.

Check Your Internet Connection

You can test your connection to Xbox Live by doing the following:

  1. Press the Xbox button
  2. Go to the system, then go to settings
  3. Go to Network and then Network Settings
    Network Settings Xbox
    Going to Network Settings Xbox
  4. Select Test Network Connection

Perform A Power Cycle

You can do a power cycle physically by carrying out the following actions:

  1. The Xbox button on the front of the system can be held down for approximately 10 seconds to turn it off. The console will turn off.

    How to power cycle the Xbox
  2. Pressing the Xbox button on your controller or game console will reset your console.

Repeat these steps if you don’t see the green boot-up animation when the console restarts. Hold down the power button until the console is entirely turned off. You can also read my guide on how to restart Xbox One and Xbox Series X.

Contact the Support Team

You’ll have to contact the support team to ask for their advice if all the other ideas given here fail. It’s a tedious task to do this, nonetheless. However, I am afraid you have no other option.

Final Words

0xe0e80000f is an error that does not have an official fix, as it is not even recognized by the Xbox team as a valid error. Through searching for solutions, the fixes I’ve found to work are updating your console, checking your internet connection, restarting the router, and performing a power cycle. If these do not work, you can also try some obscure methods such as tampering with your connection or storage. If none of these solve the issue, contact Xbox Support.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I leave my Xbox on all night?

The Xbox itself won't malfunction if you leave it on for a long time. However, I do not advise leaving it on for an extended period of time. You face the risk of the console overheating, which could harm the system, if you are unable to check on it while it is operating.

Why is my Xbox overheating?

The most common causes of Xbox Series S overheating are dust and inadequate airflow. The cooling fan on your console allows dust to enter, clogging up the internal parts. It's crucial to frequently clean your Xbox because too much dust can cause overheating and permanent GPU and processor damage.

Is the Xbox one only meant for gaming?

Consoles are mostly only used for gaming.
Xbox One statistics, though, demonstrate that they have also grown to be a mainstay in many homes for other functions. 35% of people already use them as a centre for other sorts of entertainment like watching TV shows or movies.
By giving voice commands to your machine, you can even utilise it as a personal assistant.
Use your Xbox to make a video call if you want to.

Is the Xbox Gold pricing changing?

Microsoft had intended to raise the prices of its one-month and three-month subscription packages by $1 and $5, respectively. As of January 2021, the company's tariffs won't change, according to Xbox statistics.
