Error 8018830f is not given

How do I resolve 8018830f error that appears when trying to install Lumia Denim update?
http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/mobile/support/faq/?action=singleTopic&topic=FA143712

 

If this is the error you are referring to it does not appear to be an error relating to Windows Update.

The linked KB 968003 seems to be deleted some days ago.

Intentionally?

My Weblog: www.uwe.co

Hyperlink kb836941 cannot be opened!

Please, is there no more actual version of KB947821 DISM tool that that of Oct., 2014?

If I try to access that, the website returns "Page cannot be found"!

On my Win 7 machines updates won't work, and one of them could upgrade to Win 10, but that upgrade ends up with the error "WindowsUpdate_C1900101 WindowsUpdate_dt000".

So I was told to use that DISM tool.

Pls. advise.

Thanks.

The option is offered within the link KB947821 to use, as appropriate, a 32 bit or 64 bit version of the System Update Readiness tool. The DISM tool is offered for Windows 8 and for Windows 10.

The WIKI was written to help resolve Windows 7 errors. Failure codes introduced with Windows 10 are not covered in the Article. Most failure codes and solutions. which apply for Windows 7 also apply for Windows 8 and Windows 10.
