Problem with in-place upgrade from Windows Server 2019 to 2022

I have an issue when I try to do an in-place upgrade from Windows Server 2019 to Windows Server 2022. Installation itself starts, run okay but after restarting, system reverts to older version of Windows and I got the following errors:

0x800F081E-0x2003
The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during INSTALL_UPDATES operation

An in-place upgrade can be problematic and is never recommended. Better option is a clean install, patch fully, migrate roles over. You can check the logs for additional details.

It is a on-prem machine, so it will be difficult, but I will look in the logs.

Sounds good, you're welcome; a simpler solution may be to clean install, patch fully, migrate roles over and move on.

Hello,

Due to the error that you receive it looks like the system that you are applying contains binaries that are older than the Kernel of your system (superseeded). Please ensure that you are downloading the latest ISO version available from a Microsoft official source.

Regards,

I am downloading the ISO from Azure for Education site, so I don't really have a choice. Unless you know an official repository with the newest ISO that is publicly available.

I just ran into the same error on a VM attempting to upgrade from 2019 to 2022. The VM only runs some basic routing and remote access roles and was created fairly recently.
