Windows 10 Build 10041 Windows Update Error 0x80200068

Getting a weird WU error. Here's a snapshot.

Some Background Information:

- Running Windows 10 Pro Build 10041 on a Surface Pro 3

- I recently installed Visual Studio 2013 Update 4, which is why these errors are coming in the first place.

Main Question:

What is the meaning of error code 0x80200068? How can I resolve this?

I managed to fix this issue by digging into this further. This was being caused by battery saver mode being turned on.

Looking at the BITS Jobs I was able to find the following.

ERROR CODE:    0x80200068 - Battery Saver mode is preventing the job from transferring. The transfer will resume when the system exits Battery Saver mode or reconnects to A/C power. If this job represents foreground work that should proceed even in Battery Saver mode, use priority BG_JOB_PRIORITY_FOREGROUND.

Command: bitsadmin /list /allusers /verbose

The battery on my laptop is dead and I keep it plugged in (like a desktop). This caused the Saver to be greyed out at on and hence I could not turn it off.

So I went into device manager and disabled my battery altogether. WU works like a charm now.

Hope this helps you guys too.
