Solved Why won't Windows 10 update?

Specs: Windows 10, AMD A8/4 Gb
The Windows 10 update stopped at 80%. I tried the Troubleshooter and got error 0x80080008. I did some research and went to services.msc to look at BITS. I stopped service, restarted, went back to BITS and restarted service. BITS was set for manual. I tried to update but it still stopped at 80%.

Thank you.

Fingers,

This is very strange. I was going to use the media creation tool but first I wanted to try update one more time. That screen said ready to install which I did and I now have Windows 10-1709. Curious, I did some reading and read that Microsoft was staggering the downloads.

Thank you for your assistance.

riider,

I tried your suggestion and ran the DISM command. It said it was successfully completed; I then rebooted. When I tried to do the update, l was not successful; At "Preparing to install updates 60%", it stopped.

Would using tweaking.com help?

Thank you.

Try the Windows Update Troubleshooter. If that doesn't work, save the following as a batch file, right-click, and choose Run as administrator. It should solve the common cases, assuming Windows Update is still healthy enough to help DISM do its thing. (Warning: You'll reboot once it's done.)
net stop wuauserv
net stop bits
rd /s /q "%windir%\SoftwareDistribution"
REGSVR32 "%windir%\System32\WUPS2.DLL" /S
REGSVR32 "%windir%\System32\WUPS.DLL" /S
REGSVR32 "%windir%\System32\WUAUENG.DLL" /S
REGSVR32 "%windir%\System32\WUAPI.DLL" /S
REGSVR32 "%windir%\System32\WUCLTUX.DLL" /S
REGSVR32 "%windir%\System32\WUWEBV.DLL" /S
REGSVR32 "%windir%\System32\JSCRIPT.DLL" /S
REGSVR32 "%windir%\System32\MSXML3.DLL" /S
dism /online /cleanup-image /restoreHealth
sfc /scannow
shutdown /r /t 60 /f

"Would using tweaking.com help?"
I have used Tweaking.com to repair Windows Update.
First run Malwarebytes to make sure that you are clean of malware. If it finds more than a minimum, stop and post the log for review.
Make sure you run all recommended prescans and do it all in Safe Mode.

Fingers,

I wanted to shut off screen saver before I ran tweaking.com. After clicking display in the control panel I got "The page failed to load." I then ran sfc /scannow and got "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

Thank you.

Razor2.3,

I tried Windows Update Troubleshooter but that did not work. I then tried the batch file and that did not work either. I currently have Windows 10-1703 and the update was to Windows 10-1709.

Thank you for your assistance.

Well, at this point, the easiest thing to do would be to just use the Win10 media creation tool, and use that to fix things. You can find it at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/sof...

If you rebooted into safe mode then there is no screen saver in safe mode. Safe Mode is recommended because there are many less processes and therefore less to interfere with the repair.
If you did not try in Safe Mode then you can try it again. remember to follow all tabs and all prescan steps.

If it failed in safe mode then try suggestion in #8 above.

Thank you for your suggestion. Does using the media creation tool and then the install delete all of my applications?

Thank you.

Fingers,

I tried tweaking.com in safe mode but it did not correct the problem as the Windows update still does not work correctly.

Thank you for your assistance.

It has that option, but it'll tell you what it's going to do before you reach the point of no return.

I do not know W10 as well but there has been a repair option on the install on previous versions of Windows that does not destroy files and certain settings. Always back up to an external drive just in case though.
