    Thanks for the answer.
    I've done :

    sfc /scannow
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    chkdsk /scan

    from an admin command and everything is fine.

    I've also tried the manual upgrade and I get the same error.

    I just used "Bitdefender_2019_Uninstall_Tool.exe" and I'm going to try another manual upgrade.
    Will report back.
    Thanks for the help.

    Still the same error.

    Is it possible that the driver problem is causing the mount problem ?
    I have always had problems when trying to update my Windows 10. At the end I need to delete it and install it from scratch.
    None of the solutions provided here (sfc /scannow, dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth, chkdsk /scan) or in other sites solve the problem. I have also tried by uninstalling the antivirus.

    And I always read the problem could be caused by drivers but my device manager doesn't show any error at all.

    I just keep getting the 0x80070003 error.

    I was getting a backlog of failed updates from June 27th to yesterday. Since nothing else worked, I ran a re-install of Windows-10 (keeping existing files) and now the updates are installing fine. No more 80070003 error when booting up after the restart.
    Re-install of Windows-10 (keeping existing files) doesn't work for me either. Windows forces me to install everything from scratch.

    Have you tried downloading an iso file, logging in, doing a clean boot, mounting the iso file, running setup.exe and NOT accepting updates as part of the procedure?

    - make sure you have at least 30Gb free and no security software running. (Defender is ok- and Avast seems not to cause problems).

    could be caused by drivers but my device manager doesn't show any error at all.
    Device Manager is not relevant here.

    The problem arises if there's something the upgrade procedure is not compatible with in some way.

    Suggest you may have something installed or some hardware that Windows can't cope with in some way.
    Please post specs of your PC and Windows upgrade logs.
