Windows Update says it downloaded the update but every time it runs, it fails. The failure message is almost immediate. there is no error # associated with the failure. Only the generic, "There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later".

I tried running the update using the media creation tool but I get the Modern Host Setup error and the installation aborts.

All security and other updates have installed fine via WU up to this point.

Anyone have any ideas? If I want this update, do I need to do a clean install, which I really don't want to do?

And if I do a clean install, can I restore from an image created with Macrium or will that reinstall whatever is causing the Modern Host Setup error?

Thanks for any thoughts
