    Windows Update gives error code 0x80070057


    I have upgraded to build 9926.

    My update history now shows 'No, updates have been installed yet.'

    When I run Windows Update I get error code 0x80070057

    Is there a way to get the updates to work?

    :)

  5. Try visiting update.microsoft.com and accept the control, then try a manual Windows Update

    As I see it, troubler shooter helps you to use Windows properly. It does not fix OS faults.

  10. There are a few Windows Update trouble shooters, one is local in Control Panel - try it before dismissing it as a solution.

    Here are some others:
    Open the Windows Update troubleshooter - Microsoft Windows Help
    Troubleshoot problems with installing updates - Windows Help

    This one is specific to the error you're receiving:

    Thanks, that does look helpful. I presume that I will have to download the ISO for build 9926 and put it on a stick.

    If I do this, how should I specify the /Source: operand? Should it be K:\Sources ?

  12. I prefer putting the ISO on a DVD - it makes it easier.

    All you need to know then is the drive letter of your optical drive
    Replace G above with the letter assigned to your optical drive

    Windows Update gives error code 0x80070057

    Thank you for your help. That runs cleanly, I would never have worked that command line out!

    Unforunately, even after a reboot I still get the same error with Windows update. :-(

  14. Too bad that didn't work *Sad

    Try a clean startup:

    Launch System Configuratiion (msconfig)

    on the Services tab:
    Windows Update gives error code 0x80070057 [​IMG]
    Hide all Microsoft servicesPress the [Disable all] button

    on the Startup tab: Press Open Task Manager
    Disable all items listed
    Close Task Manager
    Press [Ok] on the System Configuration window

    Restart your machine
    Try a manual Windows Update from Settings -> Update and Recovery (not Control Panel)

    The issue might be HW related.

    A few other suggested fixes were to run wsreset

    This might have more affect (works on Win10, not just Win8.x)
    Store - Re-register in Windows 8 and 8.1

    Try all three and test an update.

    I have not had much luck! There is another new version of W10 due out later this month so I will try and upgrade to that.

    When I upgraded to Build 9926 annoyingly a 450mb partition was created on my SSD without my consent. Fortunately the area used probably was really blank rather than containing a hidden partition. I consider it a rediculously dangerous thing for MS to have started doing.

    I have just tried making this partition visible to W10. Doing this has not solved my problem.
