    Error 0x8007066f, can't install updates.

    I'm trying to install updates, but I get an Error 0x8007066f and when I researched it and ran the FixIt, the result was "service registration is missing or corrupt" with a status of "Not Fixed" Anything else I can do to fix this?

    Create a Windows 10 install DVD or USB stick with the Media Creation Tool - just make sure to get the exact same version of Windows 10 that you have. Do not boot from the DVD or USB stick - just put it in with your Windows 10 running. Run setup.exe from the USB or DVD and do an in place "upgrade" of Windows 10 to Windows 10. It should not ask you for a product key - if it does you know you have the wrong version of Windows 10 on the USB or DVD.

    Actually, scratch what I said earlier. I just took a look at my update history and it seems that my regular updates are fine...but my updates to Office 2013 are all failing.

    Solved the issue. I somehow had two Office 2013 installed. Got rid of one of them and the updates installed fine on the other.
