Attempting to install updates and receiving error 0x80070643

I'm attempting to install two updates for Windows 10, but I keep getting the following error. 2018-08 Update for Windows 10 Version 1709 for x64-based Systems (KB4023057) - Error 0x80070643. I have attempted restarting my desktop, running both chkdsk and DISM.exe in the command prompt, updating drivers all to no avail so far, and would greatly appreciate any help I could get regarding this issue. If any other information is needed, please let me know, as I would like to solve this issue.

Hi Mamort. I'm Greg, an installation specialist and 9 year Windows MVP, here to help you.

What I'd do at this point is install Media Creation Tool from this link, choosing the button to Install Tool Now and then open the installed app and choose Upgrade This PC Now: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/m...

This is the most stable way to change to the latest version (which you need anyway) and because it reinstalls WIndows while keeping your files and programs in place, fixes most problems. It also brings all Windows Updates to date.

If there are any hurdles during install then these steps can overcome them: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki...

If these do not help then report back any verbatim error message or behavior.

If you want to temporarily block the update then try running the Hide Updates tool downloaded and installed from here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/f/2/2/f2...

If it wont' find and hide the Update then you can set a Metered Connection to turn off Windows Updates for awhile until the version matures and you can try again using the method I suggest which always works best: https://www.howtogeek.com/224471/how-to-prevent...


Almost everyone with major version upgrade problems who Clean installs the same version does not have those problems. This Clean Install should get you past all difficulties as it has hundreds of thousands of others who have followed the steps in this link and never come back to report another problem: 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 will keep working with you until it's resolved.

The first step would be to try resetting Windows updates using an automatic script. See:
http://www.yourwindowsguide.com/2015/12/windows...
Make sure you run the script as an administrator.
Please let us know if you need any assistance.

Hi mamort_588, 1709 is no longer the latest version of Windows 10, 1803 has been released, you should go straight to that version to bring your system up to date and make all previous updates obsolete . . .

With these major upgrades, the most successful method is to upgrade from the Windows 10 ISO - you download the ISO and then perform an Offline Upgrade

Click this link:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo...
to download the Media Creation Tool (Click on Download Tool Now), with that you can download the latest Windows 10 ISO (Select Create Installation Media for Another PC), then choose ISO

When the ISO file completes downloading

Disconnect from the Internet

Uninstall any 3rd party Anti-virus - this is a known issue with 1803

Then, double click it and then run Setup.exe to begin the upgrade . . .
