Release Preview CU KB4512941 Fails Install From 18362.327 Error Code 0x800f081f

KB4512941 Fails to Install From 18362.327 on Surface Pro using WU after several repeated attempts and clearing out SoftwareDistribution Folder. Error code 0x800f081f. MS, what is going on with all the failed CU updates lately?

Will try using Dism to manually install "windows10.0-kb4512941-x64.cab" on Tuesday. Going to enjoy the long weekend. Need a break.

Failed with same error code in vm as well. Tried Dism to no avail.

Failed on my desktop too. I'm on 18363.327. Same error code. Multiple attempts. FBH link? Will upvote.

The only way to get these CU's installed is by creating an ISO incorporating the cab files and doing in-place upgrade. Sad, this is happening too often lately.

It would seem MS has a lot of irons in fire right now. All 4 rings are doing something different right now.

FB upvoted.

When I tried the same with Windows offline, it indicated the same error, but also that the update was not applicable to the Windows image.

I had the exact same failures via WU and DISM, then updating to 1909 via ISO worked just fine.

Same issue here - cleared out all Windows Update caches, etc. and still the same. Installed manually and the same. Fails on two PCs, worked fine on Surface Go and another PC. Can't see any common threads as to why it fails on some.

You're not alone in MS world of computing. I get the same error when trying to install the patch manually. 

Upvoted. I am the seventh upvoter.
