    Got the same problem. Update failed to install. Guess Microsoft will have to pull this update back and reissue it since so many people are having the same problem.

    Sigh yet another buggy update by MS. Worked on my Windows 10 Home laptop but failing on my Windows 10 Pro desktops.

    With so many people failing to even install the update, I wonder sometimes if MS have monkeys as their QA team

    The update files for windows 10 are on update catalog:
    Microsoft Update Catalog

    but I keep getting 8DDD0010 error after adding the file to basket, if anyone's able to grab the file, please share.~

    Thank you. That worked for me. Downloaded it with IE and installed update manually

    And error occurred sending mail. Sorry I can't send it.

    I have no issues sending images and junk but try to send any type of install program it is impossible. All the stupid security warnings about attachments.
    Got your email with the file, thank you. It ended up in my junk folder, lol, silly Microsoft hotmail. Thanks again!

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news pal, but unless you purchase an enterprise edition of Windows 10 you ARE the QA team. Welcome to the new M$ scrunge development model - of which you, I and several million others are now proud interns of.

    Just registered to say thank you guys. Windows Update is one of my favourite problems in Windows and Windows 10 was the only OS with which I hadn't had any problems so far. But now this one is also dealt with.
