Windows 10 Technical preview update fails because of error 801882c1

When i tried installing Windows 10 technical preview on my Nokia Lumia 530 it constantly shows the problem " we tried using your sd card to perform the update but something went wrong (801882c1) " . There is 550 MB free on my device and 4.57 GB on my SD card.


This error is the result of the fact that we don't yet have updates-over-SD-cards implemented in Windows 10 for phones. 

The phone will prioritize using the SD card if it doesn't have enough on-device storage space. But, of course, will fail installing the update due to the OS not yet supporting updates-over-SD-cards.

So, what can you do? 

Let's try this: pull the SD card out. Have the phone check for updates again (this time it'll download to internal memory), take the update, and then stick the SD card back in.
