Unable to update python on Windows

I have Python 3.10.8 currently installed on my Windows 10 (x64) machine and everything is working fine. I download the installer for the version 3.10.9 to update my python, and the installer fail!

The file ‘python.dll’ cannot be installed because the file cannot be found in cabinet file ‘cab1.cab’. This could indicate a network error, an error reading from the CD-ROM, or a problem with this package.

I tried to download again the installer, but it fail the same way!


That’s a weird error. There is no “python.dll” file. There’s “python310.dll” and “python3.dll”. I just upgraded successfully from 3.10.8 to 3.10.9, so it isn’t a universal problem. I see that you already opened an issue and uploaded one of the log files. There should be more log files. If you have them, zip them up and attach them to the issue.
