Microsoft yesterday confirmed that some Windows 10 Insiders may have trouble in downloading the latest Insider builds for both Fast and Slow Rings. The Redmond Giant informs Insiders that users trying to install Insider Build with version 17046 or 17025 on fast and slow ring will be seeing an error “80096004”.
This error is due to internal issues being found at Microsoft and Insiders have been advised to wait for a new Insider Build to be released for being able to download. The company also confirms that Insiders would also face issues with downloading additional language packs or other features.
Microsoft Insider Team member Brandon LeBlanc in a Tweet confirmed that if users have been able to download the latest build then they should face no issues, but if you are seeing error in downloading the latest builds, then you would need to wait for a new Insider build for Windows 10 users on both Fast and Slow
FYI: Build 17046 (Fast) & Build 17025 (Slow) will fail with error code 80096004. Also: attempted downloads of language packs or additional Windows features (FODs) will also encounter an install failure. Details here: https://t.co/4eYZL8OhYI

Heads up if you're trying to install builds in the Fast & Slow rings. If you're already on the latest builds, you're good. https://t.co/kvxji2yRrH

We are currently not sure as to what is causing the issue, but Microsoft is currently working on a fix and should be able to roll out a new Insider Build as early as Friday. If any of our users have been able to install the latest build do let us know if you are facing any issues, in the comments below.
