Windows 10 Pro bluescreens during Windows update (Windows 1803)


Been having a recurring issue for months now where I cannot update my Windows 10 Pro N machine. It blue screens through the process and then when Windows restarts and attempts to repair it freezes around 44%.

Inside C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\Panther there are the follow errors:

2019-10-25 20:07:34, Error                 DU     DU::CDUSession::Search: Failed to set WU internal configuration property for targeted scans. hr = 0x80070057

I've a feeling something has gotten corrupted, but it could also be the weird way N editions need to have media packs installed but I'm at a loss. I am certain it's because it's N editon.

Has anyone came across this before?

Updated the BIOS and Windows update worked fine.

Keep in mind updating the BIOS is a process that can render your machine inoperable. Only update your BIOS if you've taken appropriate backups and know what you're doing. Failed updates can result in an unuseable computer.
