Feature update to Windows 10, version 1709 - Error 0x80242006

Any ideas?

Hi Shirley,

An issue with the settings of Windows Update can be the reason why you're unable to install the version 1709 update. Kindly access this article. The article will provide you multiple methods on how to resolve the issue. Please take note that the article will not show you all of the methods at once. If one method did not resolve the issue, click No under Did this resolve the issue? in the article to see the next steps.

Let us know the outcome.

Step 3. Delete the qmgr*.dat files. To do this, at a command prompt, type the following command, and then press Enter:

Del "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr*.dat"

For my computer, no path could be found.

Also on a few of the steps prior to this when I tried to "stop the BITS" it told me the service could not be stopped.

The third step under "Reset the Windows Update Components" can be skipped. It is alright to proceed to the next step. However, stopping BITS is one of the requirements to reset the components of Windows Update. If the service cannot be stopped, you will not be able to perform the other steps. We recommend booting the computer in safe mode with networking. While in this state, many Windows 10 service is disabled including the Windows Update services. After booting the computer in safe mode with networking, kindly repeat the steps again found in the link that we've provided in our first reply.

Keep us posted.
