  1. Updates not possible, Install error - 0x800703f1


    For a while I have been getting the error code Install error - 0x800703f1 when trying to update to the newest updates of Windows 10 (2019-05 and 2019-06). Now that 2019-06 is out the error has changed to 0x8007371c.


    Updates not possible, Install error - 0x800703f1 b7785ed3-0c5a-4796-a465-c35571e44712?upload=true.png


    I have tried different solutions recommended by Microsoft:

    - Running the Windows Update troubleshooter - no change

    - Downloading (and installing) the most recent Servicing Stack Update (SSU) - no change


    - Downloading (and installing) the most recent KB - no change

    - Running DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth - no change

    - Running sfc /scannow - no change

    - Resetting Windows Update components manually - no change


    I am quite experienced with Windows and IT in general so don't worry about complicated answers. I have tried many things and none of them worked so far, so I would really appreciate any help!


    I am sadly not able to do a clean install of windows as I have important programs and data that should not be removed as of right now.

    Further, this problem is quite painful as I have just subscribed to XBOX Gamepass Ultimate and I am not able to utilize the pc option as the installer won't work without the newest update.


    Thank you in advance!

    Felix

  4. Updates not possible, Install error - 0x800703f1

    Windows 10 doesn't download updates and gives me error 0x800703f1


    So I'll explain what's wrong. I installed my Windows 10 and everything was going smoothly. It has installed 2 updates from the day I've installed it and everything was ok. Recently updates KB3081448 and KB3081449 came out but it doesn't want to download them. Instead it gives me error 0x800703f1. My drivers are up to date and my PC is clean from viruses. Any ideas on how could I fix this?

    EDIT: I also tried installing them manually. It failed after step 2 of the installation...
