PC Build 15046: Error 80070228 during download

***Edit #2 2017.03.02 @ 3:45pm PST***

After deeper investigation, we have found there are two issues causing this same error code.

1)  If you do not have more than one language pack on your PC, but you do have an anti-virus client on your device such as Norton or Symantec, please review the following forum thread:  https://aka.ms/15046av

2)  If you have more than one language pack installed, please continue reading below for steps how to uninstall them and continue with the update.  You will be able add them back after you update successfully.

Thanks to the hard work of Insiders (special shout-out to Tino Donderwinkel!), one of the causes of this issue has been discovered.  We have already identified the bug in the OS and it will be fixed in an upcoming flight.

In the short term, please try these steps:

  • Open Settings > Time & Language > Region & Language
  • Right-click and remove any additional languages other than your current system language
  • Close settings
  • Click the Start button, type run and press enter
  • Paste the following:  Lpksetup /u
  • This will open a separate window
  • Remove any additional languages other than your current system language
  • Reboot your PC
  • Re-scan for updates

These steps should fix most affected users.  For others, there are some additional reports of various anti-virus clients causing this same download error.  We are actively investigating those reports and will provide additional updates when available.

My system has been slow and much to my surprise I find that I am downloading 15046 from 15042 and an Extreme. I will let you know how it does. It's currently at 60% and is progressing slowly.

Down on 2 Lenovo laptops no errors,  1 in 1 hour the second in 1 1/2 hours and my slow one is not finished.  Problems with the downloads.  Windows Downloads needs the be fixed so that when a major download is in effect no other downloads should start.  Today 2 had 2 Windows Defender down loads that started after the Insider download 15046 was running.

Mine is downloading when it hits 10% installing it is reverting back to -42. I tried the registry fix that worked on -42 no luck.

Both my PCs ran into error 0x80070228.

No workarounds for now: didn't work recovering Windows Update Database corruption or switching back to Slow ring, stopping Insider Preview builds and then resuming, switching back to Fast ring.

I've voted this issue via Feedback Hub.

Please release an ISO for Build 15046. Release an ISO, please.

So when I try to update: it skips downloading anything altogether, by showing a progress bar for a split second; then says "Initializing updates..." and then it fails with this error: Windows 10 Insider Preview 15046 (rs2_release) - Error 0x80070228
I too faced the same problem where it first shown "Initializing updates..." and then failed with 'Error 0x80070228'.

The 16gb Extreme running 15045 did fine and I am now running 15046. Besides finding it huge and cumbersome it did fine, I am now downloading it on a Lenovo 8 gig W520  at 28%.

I am wondering if it was one build released by Dona Sarkar that we could install with no problems. Gabe, come back.
Not all people are having troubles.

Also if it helps, my Cortana has been broken since 15031. She'll freeze as soon as you start typing/asking her a query of any kind. I've lodged feedback for this issue since it started. But each new Insider Build release doesn't fix her. I'm wondering if there's corrupt files somewhere preventing the new build from downloading :/
