I have 2 updates that are failing to install in windows 10. Those 2 are, with the errors:
Cumulative Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3081438) - Error 0x80070bc9
Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3081704) - Error 0x80070643
I'm running win 10 64 bit upgraded from Windows 7. Anything I can do to install these without error?
I got KB3081438 installed, now it's just KB3081704.
Please follow the below steps to reset the Windows Updates Components:
Press Windows Key + X on the keyboard and then select “Command Prompt (Admin)” from the menu. Stop the BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and the Windows Update Services. To do this, type the following commands at a command prompt. Press the “ENTER” key after you type each command. net stop wuauserv net stop cryptSvc net stop bits net stop msiserver
Now rename the SoftwareDistribution and Catroot2 folder. You can do this by typing the following commands in the Command Prompt. Press the “ENTER” key after you type each command.
ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old
Now, let’s restart the BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and the Windows Update Services. Type the following commands in the Command Prompt for this. Press the ENTER key after you type each command.
net start wuauserv net start cryptSvc net start bits net start msiserver
Type Exit in the Command Prompt to close it.
