    0x80240fff updates error for clean install W10p

    I performed a clean install of W10pro x64 this week with the gatherosstate.exe method to generate a ticket
    from my existing W7p. The install went fine and activated once the ticket was copied over. I didn't
    notice for a couple of days that updates was not working, and is giving the 0x80240fff error.

    It turns out the install media I used was for the W10p ver1511, which apparently had windows update issues.
    I have tried all of the posted fixes:
    Checking the defer updates box,
    Using the updates troubleshooter,
    Restarting BITS, setting for delayed start,
    Resetting the update components wuauserv,cryptsvc,bits,msiserver,
    Renaming the softwareDistribution folder

    So far this has not fixed the issue.
    When W7 updates had issues, there was always a KB fix that could be manually downloaded. Someone please tell me there is a similar KB fix for W10, since I really don't want to repeat my clean install with newer media.

    Update: The issue resolved itself without further action, but it took a day before it began updating. Not clear what step gave it the kick it needed.
