    Windows 10 Update Errors 0x80073712 and 0x80070002 and 0x8007007e


    Hi,

    I opened up a thread on this, which unfortunately got locked, so need to follow-up here.

    Original thread

    Problem definition:

    Dell XPS13 9350 (2016)

    Windows 10 Home, version 1803

    Cannot update to version 1903 (Windows Update) or 1909 (manually)


    It took me a while to try out all suggested solutions in the previous thread and everything else I found on the Internet, but unfortunately nothing worked - Windows Update consistently fails at installing the new version anywhere between 40% and 90%. I tried at least 7-8 different approaches, each taking about 30-60mins. Any more ideas to try?


    Tried and failed:

    1. Regular Windows Update.

    2. Windows 10 Update Assistant

    3. Microsoft Windows Update Troubleshooter (seemed to fix some issues with green checkmarks, but no result).

    4. Downloaded the latest Microsoft Servicing Stack Update for Win10 x64 v.1803 (Nov. 2019), from Microsoft Update Catalog. It installed a single security update (1 min), restarted, Windows Update still failed.

    5. Fix Windows file corruption

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
    sfc /scannow - consistently failed with

    Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service.

    Tried again several solutions from here, but none helped to resolve the issue.

    6. Reset Windows Update Service

    net stop wuauserv

    net stop cryptSvc
    net stop bits
    net stop msiserver
    Ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
    Ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old
    net start wuauserv
    net start cryptSvc
    net start bits
    net start msiserver

    7. Manual upgrade with Windows Media Creation Tool 1909


    Thanks,

    -Boris

    :)

    Error 0x80070002 when trying to update Windows

    I have been having issues for months with Windows 10 updates failing due to Error 0x80070002 on my gaming laptop. The full message reads:

    2019-06 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1803 for x64-based Systems (KB4503286) -Error 0x80070002.

    I am currently on version 1803 (OS Build 17134.590) and I'm being told "You're currently running a version of windows that's nearing the end of support. We recommend you update to the most recent version of Windows 10 now to get the latest features and security improvements."

    I have followed the instructions on Error Code 0x80070002 Fixed – Eassos Step-by-Step Tutorial but this hasn't resolved the problem. Does anybody know how to fix this?
