  1. Windows 10 won't update to 1903, error code: 0x80070003


    What happens is I go to update and it says 1903 is available. It downloads and installs fine. I then get the prompt to restart so installation can finish. It goes to about 10% and then my PC restarts. My PC boots and I see the message "undoing changes made to your computer."

    I check the update history and the update has failed to install. I've tried multiple times to install and it's the same result. I get the error code 0x80070003.

    I have run the troubleshooter and it always fixes an issue involving "fixing windows update components" but always detects and doesn't fix an issue where " Potential Windows Update Database Error Detected". It detects it but does not fix it. I've tried updating after the troubleshooter but it still will not update.

    What do I do? I have also posted this question to the Windows answer forums but as of the creation of this thread, none of their solutions have worked. The thread: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...8be5d04?page=2

    I really need this update because I bought Xbox Game pass but that requires 1903 to be installed. Help would be appreciated.

    EDIT: I should add all the things I have tried

    • Windows Update Troubleshooter: It says that it has fixed "fixed windows update components" but detects and does not fix another problem "potential windows update database error detected
    • Everything in this thread as of the creatin of current thread: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...8be5d04?page=1
    • Chkdsk - It runs fine but my problem persists
    • SFC Scannow - This does not work as it does not complete. It gets to like 62% and gives me the error: "windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation". I am running it in CMD as admin
    • Doing a DISM scan - Like the SFC scan, this fails as well. It works for a bit and then says: "the wof driver encountered a corruption in the compressed files resource table"
    • Using the windows media creation tool. The same error occurs and on startup a window appears saying:

      Windows 10 won't update to 1903, error code: 0x80070003 [​IMG]
    • Also have used the windows update assistant but same error happens.

    :)

    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.
