  2. Issue – Following Shawn Brink’s tutorial (which was great), I have been unable to fix the windows update problem I have encountered. The step 6 process dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth /Source:wim:F:\sources\install.wim:2 gets to 80.6% completed and then errors out with the 0x800f081f error. I am hoping another set of eyes on the below can show me the errors of my ways and solve this update issue….

    Background - Windows update 2018-04 (KB4093112) failed to install and was stuck as a pending update. Windows troubleshooting would not solve the problem. In reviewing the install history, I also found that the 2018-03 update (KB4089848) failed and apparently never successfully installed. I attempted to download both updates and install them without any success.

    Using the wushowhide.diagcab tool, I was able to hide the pending 2018-04 update and clear it from the pending updates list. After this when I check for updates it states my device is up to date. However, every time I run the troubleshooter for windows update it indicates there are pending updates that need to be installed and to apply this fix. After applying this fix, it wants to Repair Windows Update Database Corruption. After applying both fixes it indicates all were fixed. But I still cannot install the updates manually or by using windows update after unhiding them.

    Below are the subsequent steps and results that I have taken to try to solve this problem (following Shawn Brink’s process)….with no success.

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> sfc /scannow

    Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

    Windows 10 won't update!

    I've tried many different ways to fix my update problems and it hasn't helped. At this point, I'm thinking it will result in a clean wipe of the computer (which I have no idea how to really do). Anyways, my computer hasn't updated since before September.
    The list of errors is so damn long and my troubleshooting skills aren't good to be begin with. Any help to a lost Windows 10 user would be great.

    Here are the errors that pop up when I try to update:

    Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3205386) - Error 0x80073712

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

    Hi Roundhead87 and welcome to Tenforums.
    Looks to me like you're doing everything right; but your ISO is out of date. *Wink
    You can try the dism commands with the latest ISO from MS.
    Download Windows 10 ISO File Windows 10 Tutorials

    I know there are many people with issues installing KB4063112 cume and the 110 flash update as well.
    Cumulative Update KB4093112 Windows 10 v1709 Build 16299.371 - Apr. 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    But you have a problem with March's update as well.
    Have you tried downloading that from the Update Catalog and installing it that way?
    Cumulative Update KB4089848 Windows 10 v1709 Build 16299.334 - Mar. 22 - Windows 10 Forums

    I would suggest perhaps an in-place repair. Right-click and mount the latest ISO, and run setup.exe from within the operating system. Select to keep apps and files. You can watch the video in the tut - it's quite easy, and may solve your problem.

    You may also want to wait for the Spring Creators Update, which is supposed to be out soon (this week?)
    HTH.

  6. Simrick - I appreciate the response. I did previously try to manually download the March update and it failed to load. Actually it loaded but on the reboot my screen was jacked up (not the blue screen of death, but just as bad). The system rebooted two more times and undid the install of the March update.

    I just downloaded the Win10_1709_English_x64.iso file and mounted it. Then reran set 6 from the DISM tutorial (I tried both with index of 3 and 5 (Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Single Language). Same result as before, process stopped at 80.6% with the Error: 0x800f081f - The source files could not be found.

    I will try the in-place repair next....

    *Eek That is not good. Do you have a lot of peripherals attached to that rig? Any old(er) equipment that can be disconnected? Overclocking you can undo? Anything in Reliability History that might give a clue? Perhaps a failing SATA cable or USB port or something?

    Hmmmm.....(unless you actually have Single Language on the machine, you wouldn't want to point to that one).
    Will be interested to hear the results of the repair install. (Sorry, I have been unavailable for several days).

    BTW: Have you run a chkdsk lately on your OS drive?
    CHKDSK /r

  10. Simrick - I agree that this is not good. But I don't have much attached to this computer (oldest cards are my graphics card (Radeon XD 5800) and sound card (Creative SB X-SFI). Motherboard, processor, HDD are new within the last year or so. No overclocking. I re-ran chkdsk /f and had no issues. I reviewed the reliability history report and found no smoking gun there either. I am going to sit tight until the next update comes out from MS and see if that works. If not, I will strip out everything from the system (pull all cards except the graphics card) and try again from there.

    kingtez1984 - I just tried deleting the content of the Software Distribution folder in safemode, rebooting and checking for updates…unfortunately no change. I still get the 0x80073712 error. Sigh….I was really hoping something simple like this might work.

    sigh...
    Just FYI, I think the best is to run CHKDSK /r (r implies f).
    So you're not trying a repair install then, but will wait for the SCU to come out? Okay...

  12. Yes /R....typo. I still might try the repair install...just need to fit it into my schedule in case things go sideways and I need to reimage the machine which is a huge time drain...

  14. Problem Solved….I did a system restore to a restore point back at the beginning of the month and then tried to do Windows Update….the 04-18 update failed again. I tried the Windows Update Trouble Shooter (again) and it could not repair the update database in windows. Next, I ran the Reset_Reregister_Windows_Update_Components.bat file from the below tutorial. Rebooted and the update finally ran successfully. Note, I tried this same process before doing the system restore and it would not work….but the combination worked.
