    Try this:

    1) Access this file location C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and delete everything there. (Note delete only content found there and not the Download folder itself)

    2) Open CMD (command prompt) with run as administrator (admin privileges) and run this command: wuauclt.exe /updatenow

    I was able to install the update but when it was restarting to configure for windows 10 it froze and now i cant restart my pc without it freezing and i use the method at this link. Solved How to fix Windows10 Update Error code 80240020 - Windows 10 Forums. And when it finishes it comes up with error code 80246010 in my view update history log. And on my previous updates for windows 10 that failed after i had the crash im recieving the error code 80010108. And i also have one for a pending restart error code 80242014. Any ideas? I downloaded it over night through windows update and it says. Some updates were not installed Failed 1 update Errors found code 80240FFF.

    Hello,

    I've had the same problems with my upgrade, and although I actually decided I'd had enough from Windows 10 and rolled back to Windows 8.1 -
    I do have a solution for you...

    The error codes you gave us relate to Windows Update failing to initialize its download catalog, so the following actions should fix that problem...

    1) Access this file location C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and delete everything there. (Note delete only content found there and not the Download folder itself)

    2) *RESTART YOUR COMPUTER*

    3) Now run: wuauclt.exe /updatenow in Command Prompt - Be sure to run this Command Prompt at Administrator level.

    If this does not work, let us know, and we may be able to provide other suggestions to solve the problem.

    Soooo.... I did this, and it said something like "Your Windows 10 Update is ready" and so I clicked the restart now button below it. But when I restarted, it was still Windows 8.1. Thoughts? To be fair, this is further than I had gotten before. Normally there was an error downloading.

    Have you successfully completed a Windows 10 upgrade and activation on this computer?
    If not you will not be able to activate it.
