    Windows Update fails. Have tried almost everything!


    Hi everyone, can anyone suggest anything else I can try to repair Window Update? When it tries to install the latest update it gets to 93%, fails & defaults back. So far I have tried:
    Windows Update Troubleshooter.
    sfc /scannow.
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth.
    Everything on this page including step 4:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-gb/tr...windows-update.
    Downloaded kb5025297 & tried to install manually.
    Reset Windows Update using Shawn Brink's Bat file found on this site.
    I have run out of ideas.
    Thanks eveyone. Oh &:

    You could try a "Repair install", which is not an installation despite its name so your applications & your own files should be safe [I always backup beforehand anyway but I've never had a problem with it].

    Hmm, the KB you refer to seems to be the latest preview update (I have WU configured not to receive preview updates)

    I'm on 19045.2486 (above your build level) my last update was KB5025251

    Presumably you've not received that one...

    How much free space do you have on your system disk?

    If you have more than 30Gb the in-place update repair install Try3 suggested is the easiest to try, assuming your disk is sound (e.g. Crystal Diskinfo) and chkdsk c: /scan passes. I assume you've checked that.

    And after the Repair install you'll just have a few updates to do so you might as well try the main one, the latest CU, by manually downloading it from the link near the end of
    KB5025221 CU [Build 19045.2846] - Ten Forums

    If that works then you are probably home & dry. You can then just let WU handle any minor updates such as Defender & possibly .Net framework updates as a final proof that all is now well.


    Best of luck,
