  1. Windows couldn't finish installing updates


    I have Windows 10 Home and for a half a year I have been getting this "Windows couldn't finish installing the updates" error. I've tried everything. I've been constantly stopping the Windows update service and sometimes I just gave up to just see the same error once again. My update history is just... Blank. When the update fails and the windows reverse the changes it says that I'm up-to-date, even though it's still asking for an update. So what do I do? I want to finish this once and for all.


    I posted the same question on November 22, but missed the answer because I never got notified on e-mail about it hence the late reply and a new post. Windows couldn't finish installing updates 4768dd20-28f7-45ab-b2f7-51bafa08f544?upload=true.png

    Update KB4550961 couldn´t be installed

    Hi! I´ve tried hard to install KB 4550961 unsuccessfully. Even run this or that in order to correct whatever the problem might be.

    However, after restart it appears “Updates couldn’t be installed” on the screen. Running Scannow and Restorehealth as Administrator didn´t work either.

    I´ve also gone step by step thru “Fix Windows Update errors” steps 1 to 5. I´m reluctant to follow Step 6 Reset or Reinstall Windows – Refresh is not included - because I´m afraid I might loss some stuff important, though I created
    a restoration point and a USB recovery drive, just in case.
