Windows 10: Windows Update - HP Photosmart 6520 series - Error 0x80070103

    [SOLVED] Windows Update - HP Photosmart 6520 series - Error 0x80070103

    (and Error 0x8024200b)

    It's a forever loop and I cannot seem to get rid of this particular attempted update by Windows 10, I have removed the Photosmart software and drivers and wiped SoftwareDistribution folder clean several times and it still comes up. I connected my printer via USB and it still happens. I searched for this problem on Google and seems other people have been getting that same message in 8/8.1 only to see solutions is "uninstall old drivers and reboot and install latest drivers" and I only have the latest one I can find and it doesn't help.

    I even have the option set to not download driver updates through WU.

    EDIT UPDATE - fixed it by specifically searching for devices in device manager and deleting ALL printers (and of course removing the HP printer software too). What a pain in the neck though.
