    Stuck on Windows 10 1709, can't update. Error code: (0x80070003)


    Hi all

    I've been banging my head against the wall trying to update from 1709 to the newer feature updates, but they keep failing.

    Windows update keeps trying to install 1803 - it gets about 70% of the way through then gives error 0x80070003 and says the update failed. No more detail than that. I get a similar result with Windows Update Assistant, and the troubleshooter is useless.

    I've tried running the DISM and SFC scans, they return no errors, disabling everything running in the background or on startup (including my antivirus software). Same result.

    I've also tried directly updating from the ISO files. I couldn't find the ISO for 1803, but I've tried 1809 and 1903, but in both cases, the utility starts up, does some initial checks, and then gives an error 'Sorry, we're having trouble determining if your PC can run Windows 10', which I can't fathom, as I am well above the minimum specs and have over 200 gigs of free hard disk space.

    I'm starting to think that a clean install might be my only option, but I'd really rather avoid that if possible as it's a pain reinstalling everything, so I'm posting here in the hope that someone has a bright idea of something else I can try first.

    Any help gratefully appreciated. Many thanks.

    :)

    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.
