Hi Doug. I'm Greg, a volunteer installation specialist and 8 year Windows MVP, here to help you.

What I would do if you haven't yet is manually install Fall Creator Version 1709 by installing Media Creation Tool and choosing to Upgrade Now. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/m....

This the most stable method to upgrade to the new version (which you need anyway) and will bring you fully up to date with reinstalled Windows that often will solve any other problems you have - like with buggy Windows Updates which are the last place I'd get the new version from.

You can use the same tool to download the ISO or create bootable media so you only need to do it once, and have the bootable media for repairs or possible Clean Install.

If there are any hurdles during the Upgrade see these steps to optimize the install as this is evidence it's corrupted: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki...

You can also reset Windows Updater at any time following http://www.askvg.com/fix-windows-update-problem...

But remember that a factory or Upgrade install are inferior installs that most enthusiasts would never run in the first place because they'd expect endless issues. Most prefer to do the gold standard Clean install from this link which has had no reported issues: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki...

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask back any questions and let us know how it goes. I'll keep working with you until this is resolved.

The error code simply means update isn't applicable which can be due to the update already installed.

Try resetting Windows 10 updates using an automatic script. See:
http://www.yourwindowsguide.com/2015/12/windows...
Make sure you run the script as an administrator.

It appears there are several possible causes, and fixes, for this error code.

Start with these steps:


There could be a small problem with your Window installation. The SFC command will first check the disk, then the DISM commands will repair minor problems with Windows.

In start menu type “PowerShell”
Right Click on the result and select “Run as Administrator”

run next command to check and fix the disk and display a status report.:

Chkdsk c: /F

You will have to restart the computer for that check to work.

After ChkDsk is done go back to the admin prompt and run following commands, one at a time to Repair The Installed Windows Image

In start menu type “PowerShell”
Right Click on the result and select “Run as Administrator”

Type (or paste) the following command and press <enter> to Scan the integrity of all protected system files and replace incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

sfc /SCANNOW




this command checks whether the image has been flagged as corrupted by a failed process and whether the corruption can be repaired:
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth


this command scans the installed windows for component store corruption:
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth


this command performs Window repair operations automatically:
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

The latest cumulative update for Windows 10 1607 is December 12, 2017—KB4053579 (OS Build 14393.1944)

Try downloading it manually from the MIcrosoft Update Catalog:
http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Sea...

Then manually install it using the following instructions:
https://www.groovypost.com/howto/manually-insta...

If that does not work, try the following:

The first troubleshooting option you can try is Microsoft's own Windows 10 Troubleshooter for Windows Update. In the Windows 10 Creators Update, you can find it in Start > Settings > Update & security > Troubleshoot, click Windows Update then click Run the troubleshooter.

If you are running Windows 10 Anniversary Update or an earlier version of Windows, click Start, type: troubleshooting, hit Enter then launch the Windows Update troubleshooter.

You can run the troubleshooter a couple times to see if it helps.

You can also try a repair upgrade:

Señores al actualizar a esta version sale errores y vuelve a la version anterior.

Lo hice con el asistente de actualización ya que en Windows update se quedó con las leyendas error 0x80246010 y error 0x80070643 y no busca mas la version 1803.

Tambien probe el catalogo de Microsoft update y sale una leyenda que "no se aplicable al equipo".

Seguí todos los pasos según Answer Microsoft y el problemas continua para esos dos errores.

Una vez mas problemas en la actualización. No soy el único ya que veo que varios usuarios tienen el mismo problema.

Agradeceré una solución o realícenla ustedes ya que me parce que el problemas es de Microsoft con esta nueva version.

Gracias
