The most common error in updating Call of Duty WWII is due to the internet connection. Due to its large size, it would demand a faster and more stable internet connection. The best solution is using the network cable instead of wireless, wireless networks tend to operate slower and are not stable compared to the wired connection.

Try to shut down your Xbox completely by pressing and holding down the power button. After it has turned off, unplug the console from the wall outlet then leave it for a few minutes (5 would be the best). Plug the power cord back again then turn it on and leave it for about two minutes. Try making the update again and most likely the problem will have been solved, if not then try the next option.


Attaching faulty external attachments like gaming pads, monitors, USB sticks and others could lead to an error in updating the game. The solution to this is simple, turn off the console first then unplug any unwanted attachment. Leave the device for a few minutes and then plug in only the necessary devices. Turn on the console and check if the issue persists. 

External Hard Drive 

Well, there have been many discussions on whether the external hard drives can affect the smooth operation of the Xbox. The answer is yes and no, that’s crazy right? If the external hard drive is too big, it can overload the system hence leading to lagging. When the system lags, it also affects the installation of games hence your device will have the error code of 0x8b050033. The best solution to this is to find a hard drive that is compatible with your Xbox and follow all the manufacturer’s instructions for use.

To check if the hard drive is affecting the update, turn off the console and unplug all the hard drives attached to the device. It will also be necessary to detach all the cords. Leave it for a few minutes and plug in the cords leaving out the hard drive. Turn on the console and check if the issue still appears. If the error has been solved then it will be advisable not to use the same hard drive but rather, use the one compatible with the series of your Xbox.



Reinstall The Game 

At times, the game’s installations can become corrupted and will need re-installation, however rarely happens these days but you have to try if you are out of options. Reinstalling gives a fresh copy of all the files hence the corrupt ones are eliminated. All you have to do is to delete the current version of the game on your PC and download it on the official site. The estimate it will take on Xbox is roughly 45GB while on PS4 it is 56GB.

Check Out The NAT

Having your NAT (Network Address Translation) in a strict mode could sometimes cause connection problems. For Xbox one, go to your network settings and ensure that you do not have a message that says “double NAT detected”, at times the NAT type is displayed in the pre-game lobby.

Perform A Factory Reset 

This should be the last option if the problem persists since it will erase all the settings, saved games and accounts. To avoid data loss, you will have to synchronize anything you intend to retain. To perform a factory data reset on Xbox one, 

  • Step 1: Press the Xbox button
  • Step 2: Select  ‘profile and system then settings’
  • Step 3: Select ‘system then console info’
  • Step 4: Choose ‘Reset console’

Clear Cache

Error while updating could happen due to an ongoing download which does not appear on your screen. To delete an ongoing download you will have to clear the download cache by following these procedures.  

  • Open Steam on the top left then settings
  • Open Download tab then clear download cache

Update The Drivers

If you are using a PC for gaming then you would probably apply these to all your games to get a better gaming experience. After all, why would you use old or outdated drivers while they are prone to problems here and there? Download and install the driver of your choice since there are a number of them. Run the installed driver and scan for any recent updates. If you find one then follow the necessary installation prompts.
