    Looks like all Win 10 upgrades are failing from what I see. I suspect they will not succeed until the 29th (my guess).

    I wouldn't doubt it, that MS has some type of time codes built in to prevent anyone upgrading before 07-29.

    That may well be the answer but I wonder why the update is being continually tried if it is not a starter yet? Mine has failed 5 times so far.

    For a process that shouldn't be creating anxiety, this is not a good start. It's not that I am in a hurry, I just find these errors unsettling, especially as I support a few people and am expecting calls I can't answer.

    OK - I'll just wait.............

    Patience is one thing. It's quite another to be offered a link to "Get help with error 80240020" that actually gives you no such thing. Worse, any independent searching for this error code turns up nothing. Why reference error codes that have no fix? It's just frustrating...in that time-honoured Microsoft Way. It's hardly the user's fault that they raise expectations so high, then fail to deliver

    I have (well, HAD) Windows 7 Professional, and my notice to upgrade came up about 7 PM Eastern Time. My upgrade went painlessly, all is working well, and my 5 year old custom built PC acts almost brand new. I assume I got an early notice due to being a Windows Insider on the "fast ring".
