    Windows Update Error 0x80070103


    I have a pending update from HP in Windows Update, however it shows an error message for this update constantly. The error message is:
    There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help:
    Hewlett-Packard - Imaging - Null Print - HP Photosmart 5520 series - Error 0x80070103
    I have tried all the troubleshooting options such as clean boot, etc. and I have tried the Windows Update Troubleshooter with no luck.

    I am running Windows 10 Build 10130.

    I had a similar error when I hooked up a mobile and took it off again, it kept giving me an error:

    “failed to install SAMSUNG Electronics Co., Ltd. - Other hardware - SAMSUNG Mobile USB Composite Device”

    Until I hooked the mobile back up and it installed fine.

    I'm not sure ther'e much you can do since it's Win10. In previous versions you could hide that update. but Win10 you can't. The error code indicates that either the software being offered is backlevel to what's alreadu installed or ... a co-instlaller already installed what was needed ... this 'second' driver throws the error code.
    These will help explain it, but won't help fix it.

    You could try installing the driver from HP: search results (sorry, all I had to go on was 5520 series - hey ... that was an old IBM device )

    Pick the 8.1 version if available and the same bit depth as your OS (x86 /amd64 - 32-bit/ 64-bit)

    You might have to uninstall the driver already on the machine, then physically disconnect the printer
    Devices prefer to have the software installed before being connected ... many installers prompt you when to connect the device.

    The only thing that stumps me here is that the printer is connected through WiFi. I will try disconnecting the printer and reconnecting it.

    That might be the key - try physically connecting the printer (Ethernet / USB) when you install the drivers/software.
