    Hello, whilst it would appear entirely illogical- we're after a work around anyway- it would help anyone answering this if you could confirm you have precisely followed this which has worked for some people?

    Solved Windows Update error 0x800706d9 - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums
    My point is this:

    You don't want the Windows Firewall on, fine, nether do I. But if you create a shortcut to the services, you can turn on the Firewall service at your convenience to run updates, and stop it again the same way when finished updating.

    That at least will give you a short term fix, and hopefully, MicroOops will correct it.

    Hope this is a little more specifically helpful than my previous post.

    1. Right click Start menu > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services ( "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools\Services.lnk" )

    2. Right click Windows Firewall > Start

    3. Run Updates

    3 Services > Right click Windows Firewall > Stop

    Annoying? Yes. Will it work? Yes.

    Have you tried this?

    Or you can let Windows Repair do it for you, un-select all repairs and choose only "Repair Windows Firewall".

    And have you checked the event log? Sometimes it provides some usefull info, like:

    Drop Norton to the zero. Check system files integrity. Turn on FW. Get the updates.

    That makes more as two months that I struggle with Windows 10 Updates.
    I have read all the forums but nothing helped.
    Finally I found the solution.
    Go to the site Windows 10
    Click "Update now".
    Microsoft will install a new version of Windows 10, without changing anything in your settings and all your programs will continue to operate normally.
    All your problems with Windows Update will be settled.
    It takes patience because it takes a long time. But it is worth.

    Is there anything different/special about this method? I've tried all the standard methods for installing the update and they have all failed. Is there any reason to expect this one to succeed?

    Yes, the difference is that he will completely renew the registry and I guarantee you that all your problems with 'windows update' will be solved. All programs will be running fine and all your settings are kept; only the passwords are forgotten. You will have to reintroduce them the first time when necessary.
    The cleaning and installing of Windows 10 takes time. Don't do it when you are in a hurry.
    Good luck,

    Aha! That sounds like something that might actually work. So I'll try it - I had given up on the upgrade until something new or different appeared; hopefully this is it.

    But I will make a complete Macrium disk image backup first (of course)

    And it might just reduce the overall size of the registry too - an extra bonus if it happens.

    This cannot be true if all programs still work- including their registry entries. And there will be many user preferences and settings that are not overwritten- but some are.

    Same applies to an in-place upgrade repair install- which is essentially what you are proposing.

    Well perhaps, but my guess is the fix only changes the Windows part of the registry, not the User part. Even though the registry looks like one file is is actually 2, right? So completely rebuilding just the Windows part could fix any issues resulting from errors in that part.

    Well that was no help at all. It did the same thing I have seen before several times: completed the updates/reboots and then when it says something like "Your system will now reboot" the screen goes black and then shows "We are restoring your system to the previous version."

    Fortunately this worked ok (like it has before) but it leaves a bunch of update files on my boot disk with no easy way to delete them. I've had enough practice with this to delete them myself.

    I'm beginning to think I'll be on 1511 forever. Which may not be a bad thing; it works perfectly.
