    Can't update Windows 10....Error Code 0x80070003


    Microsoft Community Brain Trust-


    I haven't been able to update Windows 10 for several months now. I searched on this forum and followed some of the troubleshooting steps as follows below. I think I am going to need a little more personalized help


    I ran the Windows Update Troubleshooter

    I ran the DISM command-line tool and the System File Checker SFC tool to check the integrity of the Windows system files


    After each step, I tried to update and got the same error message:

    Some update files are missing or have problems. We'll try to download the update again later.

    Error code: 0x80070003


    Any advice on how to fix this would be appreciated. If you could stay with me on this thread as I accomplish your suggested steps, that would be appreciated as well.


    Thanks for your time.

    :)

    Windows defender doesn't update- Error code 0x80070003

    This applies to Windows 8/8.1 and probably applies to Win 10. Many of the suggested fixes for various issues have yet to be updated by MS to reflect whether they are applicable to the new OS.

    Can't update Windows 10....Error Code 0x80070003

    Windows Update Error 0x80070003 on KB4022715 and KB3186568.

    Hi, I'm getting error 0x80070003 on the cumulative and .NET updates for this month (KB4022715 and KB3186568). I'm using Windows 1607 (14393.1198). My system is not compatible with the Creators update.

    I've tried many different things, all have failed. Things I've tried:

    I have a copy of my system in a VirtualBox VM. I'm willing to try about anything on that. Keep in mind that it takes me about 2 hours to try a single method out in the VM. I will try any fixes in the VM before trying them on my real system anyway. I know the VM uses different drivers.

    Here is my posting on another forum about this problem:
    Windows Update Failed, Error 0x80070003 - Windows 10

    I'm really not looking to re-install or repair Windows. I understand that may be my only option later on.

    Any help is appreciated.
