    Unable to install Amber update on Lumia, error 8018830f fault code

    My device Lumia 820 is having a bit issue with Amber Update. I am unable to understand whether this is my phone issue or there is some problem with the update. I am trying to run the update. But I am getting an error. The error code is 8018830f. I am getting this constantly.

    I thought the update will be a bit smoother to install. But somehow it is not working well. My friend is having another series of Lumia and in this device the update was installed without problem. But it looks there are lots of thing missing in it. First thing I want is how to get rid of this error and second is it worth to go for this.

    This is an update failing error. That means your device is having some issue due to which you are unable to run the update. The first thing you can checkout is the internet connection. IT is better to switch your phone on wifi so that you can gain a bit more speed to run the update. Second wipe out some files from your internal memory if it is full. Keep some space free so that the phone can download and run the update. I saw on Microsoft forums that this update needs some 1.3GB of free space to move ahead and it is very annoying to download it on 2G network.

    The update looks large in size. Whoever is trying to download and install the update via mobile data will face issue. The best thing to get the update is simply doing it via wifi where you have more bandwidth. This is not a bug.

    You are only facing the error because your phone is not getting proper bandwidth. Whichever person I saw who is facing the issue is simply trying to download the update on mobile data. Try it on 3G.
