Windows 10: Check for Updates After Update Error?

    Check for Updates After Update Error?


    How do you check for updates after Windows Update fails to install an update (e.g., (KB3122947) - Error 0x80070643)? The only buttons that show up are Retry or Download, not Check for Updates which is usually there. I have automatic updates disabled (set to notify only) via Group Policy, by the way.

    If you want o install the update, please use this method posted by Cluster Head in another thread...............

    You will need to copy and paste the command line into the Elevated Command Prompt ............. Command Prompt (Admin )
    If you need further instruction on how to use the method, please post back.

    On the left side of Programs and Features, there is the View installed updates. That is only for showing the updates already installed.
    It has absolutely nothing to do with checking for updates.

    Use the link I gave you if you want to install the updates.
    Either that, or wait for Microsoft to sort out the issue. There is no apparent ill-effect without the update. So, you can safely sit back and wait.
    I have a laptop with 32-bit Win 10 Pro which has yet to get the update. It still runs perfectly.
