    Further to the above and as well as trying TV2 suggestions above

    8) Executed "Reset_Reregister_Windows_Update_Components.bat"
    at : https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...dows-10-a.html
    then went to Windows 10 Media Creation Tool website
    at: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...oad/windows10/
    and performed "Update now"
    Results: Windows update failed - Error 0x80004005

    9) Executed Batch File to Reset Windows Update (WUReset.bat)
    see: https://goo.gl/q1Q73z
    after than went over to Microsoft "Get the Windows 10 Anniversary Update today" website
    at: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...update-history
    Downloaded and executed: Windows10Upgrade28084.exe
    Results: Windows update failed - Error 0x80004005

    I checked the Eventlog immediately after the error and found that the following

    Code:
    EventID  3 Virtual Disk Service -  Service started 
    EventID 16 Microsoft Windows Kernal General - The access history in hive \??\C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\Rollback\Boot\BCD was cleared updating 0 keys and creating 0 modified pages.
    EventID  4 Virtual Disk Service -  Service stopped
    Skip the Anniversary Update?-w10-updt-error-0x80004005-vcd.jpg

    Note:
    In between all attempts above, I restored a Windows image that did nót contain any 'update-stuff', i.e. the one I create just before I started trying to update Windows with 1607. There are no downloaded files, things like that.

    Wonder whether it might have something to do with me removing all apps?

    All in all, probably it would have been a quicker job to do an install from scratch...

    I have had my connection set to metered...and 1607 is currently downloading...???!!!! Not impressed.

    It had already downloaded, tying up a good chunk of usable bandwidth for the entire household, tried unsuccessfully to install itself 4 times when I wasn't present.

    It is not supposed to be downloading over a metered connection.

    Yup downloaded then installed on my pc and wifes laptop. Now both without internet. Reverted laptop back to 1511. Im still trying 2 wifi adapters and looking for working drivers.

    They seriously need to release a fix for this

    They need to change it back so you checkbox the updates you want seperately.

    The attempted download stopped, and it is now back to leaving me with a choice to download.

    Yes, Ive seen this too.
    I speculate that because our "metered connections" are registry hacks that Windows Update can take a while to 'figure it out'.
    It isn't really downloading anything, just spinning in circles in confusion.

    If it were me I would try restoring my disk image and then downloading the 1607 'update' directly and trying the installation 'fresh'.

    Or even running the TenForums batch file linked above right after the image restore and then installing it direct.

    I wonder if something is messed up from all the changes and various fixes. Although I can't think of why uninstalling apps would affect WU, there may have been other customizations made that could - we just can't see that from here.
    The benefit of an in-place upgrade is that all your programs and settings* are maintained.
    (*most of your settings)

    I have been running the Windows Update - Reset in Windows 10 - batch file. See under 8, 1st item above.
    Disabled automatic updated now (services.msc) and will do an install from scratch, once I have time but above all... the spirit/energy to do so. Installing Windows 10 is 1 thing, most of the work is the setup of all applications but above all all the different settings within the applications...
    Just have a look at Office (all the settings in in Word, Outlook ...)

    There are sooo many complaints about this 1607 update, probably many of us are just skipping it.

    I hear you. A clean install of Windows takes me the better part of a week to complete - 1 hour to install the OS, 35 hours to install and set up everything else.

    Are you saying that the direct installation of the 1607 update does not work?
    If so, where does it fail?

    You've set Ethernet as metered, I presume? I use a (no registry hack needed) WiFi metered connection. I can confirm that Windows Update does indeed try (and fail) to download over a standard metered connection before offering the 'Download now' option. It's even recorded as a failed download in Update History.

    that's for sure , sad enough.
    the weirdest thing is that even they cannot create a backup of settings of their own products.
    [Dreaming ON] imagine run a tool : all office settings being saved as a kind of .exe on OneDrive.
    Install office, run the exe, settings are restored.
    [Dreaming OFF]

    they can't!

    I have really no idea...

    I just gave it a try again, twice in fact.
    Just check for updates run the installer
    the 2nd try is to run the "Reset_Reregister_Windows_Update_Components.bat" again.
    didn't work

    both cases end up with 'We couldn't finish installing update' (in the action centre)
