    If you are trying windows Update , download the ISO and try a Inplace Upgrade as outlined the the Installation Tutorials Section.
    Thanks, you were right -- I was out of date.

    Windows Update failed miserably with the anniversary update. So I used the Media Creation Tool and created an ISO.

    I also disabled Windows Defender, just in case. I had Avast!, but uninstalled it and then ran the Avast cleanup utility just to be safe.

    Still ended up failing at 71%, due to STOP CODE.

    And then greeted with this:


    When I elected to install, I selected not to download updates during the installation process (but instead to do later)... I figured that would be safer. Is it better to let the installer download updates during the process, even though I'm using a downloaded ISO?

    I had issues with .240 ( and .380) too and using the ISO was the only way to get past it for me , like you Win. Update failed time and again as did a direct download of the Update File itself.

    put the error number into google and see what you find , that's not one I have before.....

    I did use the Media Creation Tool to create an ISO... but it didn't work. Maybe I have to get an ISO of the original .240 and try that?

    On the Machines that an Inplace Upgrade did not work I ended up having to Clean Install Win10 , sorry for that bad news....

    You are on .240 it seems , so a .240 ISO won't help you , I am not sure if a Reset or Refresh would work , to reset something internal to Win10 , so WinUpdate will work as it should , but if an Inplace Upgrade didn't take , I suspect Not.

    I have had no issues again once past .240 or .380 but still have two machines on 1511 .589 but no AU yet , but I haven't forced those as they are on older hardware and AU may not be ready for them?

    Not necessarily. I have a Samsung R519 circa 2009 vintage that's running 1511. That got offered the AU when I last checked for updates.

    I discovered that you had to completely UNINSTALL Avast! Even disabled, it is still "running." With Defender, I didn't uninstall it, but just disabled it.

    I managed to update my Windows 8.1 Pro x64 SSD (Winclone copy for testdriving) to Windows 10 AU-1607. It auto activated with the digital license!

    I had to UNINSTALL my ESET Smart Security v9 av software first, after the update was installed, I re-installed ESET. Piece of cake!

    Cheers
