Error 0x8000ffff - Problem tring to update Windows 10

I notice that my Windows 10 system is not updating. I get the error:

• Actualización para Windows 10 Version 1607 para sistemas basados en x64 (KB4033631) - Error 0x8000ffff

Any help welcomed!

Hi JR,

Usually, the 0x8000ffff error appears because of the following:

• Viruses, Trojans, and malware infections
• Corrupted system files
• Incorrectly loaded drivers
• Faulty software or programs

To fix the said error code, you may try some of the troubleshooting below:

Method 1: Do a Virus Scan on Windows 10 to check if your computer is infected with a virus.

1. Launch your anti-virus programs to do a thorough virus scan on your computer.
2. If you get virus notice, follow the instruction on screen to remove the virus.
3. If there’s no virus or malware, end all the currently running programs and restart the PC.

Method 2: Change to Administrator Account

1. Click on the Start menu and then click on the user picture.
2. Select Sign out from the pop-up menu.
3. Switch to the Administrator account and login Windows 10 again.

Let us know if the issue still persists.
