    Windows 10 Professional

    Download error - 0x800703f1

    I'm unable to perform most updates on Windows 10 Professional. Currently attempting to update to version 22H2 and also install KB5012170. Some small updates work but I have not had any success installing 22H2. I can't find any pattern between the updates that work and the updates that don't.

    Error in both cases is "Download error - 0x800703f1". This happens after installation reaches about 20%.

    Windows Update Troubleshooter appeared to work properly, but did not change the symptoms.

    Reset Windows Update Components batch file from Reset Windows Update in Windows 10 appeared to work properly, but did not change the symptoms.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hi, you could try

    else an in-place upgrade repair install which keeps all progs, data and most settings

    Your PC seems to be quite old- perhaps from 2013?

    I would also as a matter of routine first run
    a. a disk check (Hard Disk Sentinel is excellent, giveaway version or full functional trial) - result right on its GUI. Green is good.

    b. run
    chkdsk c: /scan
    from an admin command prompt.
    Check it passes.

    c. If ok similarly run
    and check it passes.

    It could also occasionally be because of old NVIDIA driver....

    Please check if you got the latest, 528.24.

    Also check the BIOS-version, as I understand that is crucial for getting the last versions of Windows 10.
