Still not working. I believe this one failed update is now preventing me from getting others as well.

Have tried numerous times and it's clear to me that this is a Microsoft bug and they should fix it ASAP instead of giving us stupid workarounds.

Hi,

Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

I understand that you are facing issues installing Windows updates on your PC. I appreciate your efforts in trying to resolve the issue.  

  • Are you able to install other windows updates or do you have issues only with installing KB4592438?

  • What is the make and model of the PC?

I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below and see if that helps.

Method 1:  Windows Update Troubleshooter

I suggest you run the Windows Update Troubleshooter and check if you are able to install Widows updates.

Method 2: Clean boot

Try booting your PC in clean boot and attempt to install Windows updates. Refer to the article on How to perform a clean boot in Windows

Note:  Clean Boot starts Windows with a minimal set of drivers and startup programs, so that you can determine whether a background program is interfering with your game or program. Also, you may not be able to use some programs in clean boot. 

Note: Please refer the section Reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting to boot the computer in to normal mode after troubleshooting.

Method 3: If the update has failed to installed, you may download and install the update manually by accessing the Microsoft Update Catalog and typing in the KB article number of the failed update.

Method 4: Reset Windows update components in Windows

I suggest you Reset Windows update components in Windows  and check if you are able to install Widows updates.

Method 5: Fix Windows Update errors

I suggest you refer and follow the suggestion on how to Troubleshoot problems updating Windows 10

Note: Before performing chkdsk, please backup the Data. While performing chkdsk on the hard drive if any bad sectors are found on the hard drive when chkdsk tries to repair that sector if any data available on that might be lost.

Note: Please ignore the suggestions for “Perform a clean installation of Windows 10” from the above article.

Hope it helps.

Thanks you. Since 2021, no updates (other than Microsoft's antivirus updates) have been successful. Error 0x8007000d everywhere.

Method 1. Did it repeatedly. Did not help.

Method 2. Clean boot did not help.

Method 3. Uploaded updates manually. The same mistake. Did not help.

Method 4. Components are discarded. Did not help.

Method 5. Corrected errors, did not help.

Bonus number 1. DISM (with auto-update storage from the Internet or from the 20H2 image from Microsoft), SFC, check disk for errors, disconnect all devices, update drivers, reset BIOS, reset update center, remove previous updates, remove installed programs, remove cache, check driver signatures , deleting temporary files, disabling services and startup, safe mode, clean boot, checking memory, recovering from MediaCreationTool 20H2 with saving files, working in a temporary account, nothing helped, nothing. Each update is fully downloaded, installed to 100%, and then ends with error 0x8007000d. No one has ever given a working solution to this problem. There is only one way out. Formatting the disk and completely reinstalling Windows with the loss of all files and programs.

KB4601382 (2021) - Error 0x8007000d

KB4601319 (2021) - error 0x8007000d

Any subsequent KB update will give this error too, I'm 100% sure. Why did I buy Windows? ;-(

Bonus number 2. Nearby is the same new computer as the one on which the 0x8007000d errors occur. Exactly the same software, exactly the same hardware, an exact exact copy of everything. And all Microsoft updates work on it. Thanks you...

Yours faithfully

Oh, if everything in Windows would be so simple... Alas, it didn't help me. I didn't have the mixed reality portal installed, so I installed it for the purity of the experiment. Then it rebooted. Then deleted, rebooted again, and tried to update. Nothing has changed. 0x8007000d.

Hi,

 

Thanks for replying.

Method 1: Performing an in-place upgrade.

By performing an in-place upgrade also known as repair install. A repair install installs Windows over the existing installation of Windows. Performing a repair install of Window,  you will not be losing anything. This will repair the broken system files and simultaneously preserves files & applications.

 

Performing an in-place upgrade.

To perform an in place upgrade on the computer, refer the steps mentioned in the article How to perform an In-place Upgrade with Windows 10 Step-by-Step Guide by PaulSey…

 

Note: As a precaution, I suggest you backup important files and data before performing a repair install of Windows.

 

Hope it helps.

Regards,
Zaki

Greetings @MojoBoingo,

No chance that your name was a reference to the group "Oingo Boingo" by chance? LOL! Anyways, this is the solution that had helped me with the issues with all dealings with the entire featured update "2021-02 Cumulative Update Preview for Windows 10 Version 20H2 for x64-based Systems (KB4601382)". Might I add that this specific situation had spun me into a world of pissed off that I had never experienced in my life, as it had also caused my drives to fail and corrupt & had also been a job for me in the span of over 6 days. In other words, I had to Nuke everything with DBAN, short for Dariks Boot and Nuke. The name explains everything, no need for any jibber-jabber: https://dban.org/. "READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY! I ASSUME NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT PAY ATTENTION OR READ" "IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DEALING WITH, DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS"

Working to repair the corrupted partitions of the featured update is messy, and is not guaranteed to work. So, since the DBAN has to be run from startup & booted through the BIOS and requires many hours, let it run to ensure a clean installation. Once everything has been wiped, please ensure that your Windows .ISO is on an ultra thumb drive and has been set as a bootable device & inserted into your most direct 3.0 USB slot. My mobo has a dedicated BIOS USB slot on it, I tend to use this for any type of system install, Windows/Drivers, etc. Boot this from the BIOS and reinstall everything to your desired drives. Ensure to delete and not format any drives when reinstalling Windows, as formatting will cause the drives to lose their readable volumes.

Be careful when back up and running, and prior to any updates, do this:

Follow these steps to stop Windows 10 updates: Fire up the Run command ( Win + R ). Type in “services. msc” and hit Enter. Select the Windows Update service from the Services list. Click on the “General” tab and change the “Startup Type” to “Manual or Disable”. Restart your machine.

Then check periodically for updates for the failed feature update, without going to that failed feature update. Microsoft should remove these damaging updates.

Hope this helps! I'm nobody special but an old geek LOL!
