  1. Update error: (KB3172729) - Error 0x80248007 - continues


    Hi,

    With the latest ransomware troubles it would be great to get this fixed. It has been a problem since last August.

    Have tried everything I can think of including manual updates - no luck.

    Any ideas would be most appreciated.

    Thanks!

    :)

    What apps need to be uninstalled for Windows 10?

    Hey, I read the article, and their list of error codes did not match with my error code.

    I had just tried updating again, and this is what came up:

    "There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help:

    • 2018-03 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB4088889) - Error 0x80248007

    • Feature update to Windows 10, version 1709 - Error 0x80248007"

    does this error code (Error 0x80248007) reveal any solutions?

    Hi innovation2. Welcome to the TenForums @innovation2

    First I would run the Windows Update trouble shooter.

    Windows key + S, search bar appears, type troubleshooting into search bar, troubleshooting appears at top. Click it, window opens, lower right side "Fix problems with Windows Update", click. Window opens, click on “advance”, click on Run as administrator, click “Next”. Should run clean. If not run again.

    Then try update.

    If this doesn't work, to a command prompt(admin)

    sfc /scannow

    There is another Trouble shooter at

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...troubleshooter

    which another member said fixed their issue.

    After that I would recommend is an in place repair / upgrade. This will take you to the Creator Update and I'm not sure you that is where you want to be depending on the age of your gear. The Creator Update is being rolled out by MS and with each wave they learn / fix and promote. That is not to say you can't do it, just to say there is some risk.

    Lets see how the trouble shooters and file checker work.

  5. Hey Ken,

    Thanks for the ideas. I had already run 1 updater . . . followed your instructions with no luck.

    The system scan came back with no integrity violations. Got a message from the second updater (had that before) about a database corruption issue - applied the fix. Here are the results:

    Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings - Detected

    Some security setting are missing or have been changed - Fixed

    Service registration is missing or corrupt - Fixed

    Potential Windows Update Database error detected - Fixed

    Windows Update components must be repaired - Fixed

    Check for pending updates - Fixed

    Nope: Security Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3172729) - Error 0x80248007

    The machine is a Dell Inspiron 5000 series with Core I7 and 16GB of memory - about 3 years old.

    It is backed up.

    Next steps?

    Thanks again

    8 hours ???

    That is long although if you are downloading updates with a slower connection anything is possible.

  9. Yeah - and we have a 25mbps connection too . . .

    It has completely updated and we have now been notified about the impending "Creator" transformation.

    What would lift be without constant updating???

    Many thanks again Ken
