Hi Ziggy,

To verify, have you tried running the DISM (Deployment Image Servicing and Management) command, and SFC (System File Checker) tool? Did you get any error messages?

If you have done all the steps on the link provided by the previous moderator, and the issue still persists, we may need to reset or reinstall Windows. See Recovery options in Windows 10.

Let us know.

I had this issue with 16199->16215 and did the following to go to 16226 instead:

1) Opened Services.

2) Stopped Background Intelligent Transfer Service.

3) Stopped Windows Update.

4) Opened Explorer.

5) Deleted contents of c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download.

Upgrade completed successfully.
