win 10 1709 update KB4056892 error 0x80070bc2

I'm running win 10 1709 build 16299.125.  Windows update tried intall update KB4056892.  Upon restart i get notification that windows was unable to install all updates.  Install history shows error 0x80070bc2.  Update continues to try to install the update, same issues.  I downloaded the update from win update catalog. tried to install, says it is already installed.  Update still wants to install it.

I ran windows update trouble shooter.   "win update components must be repaired" .  The trouble shooter couldn't fix it (in admin mode).  Details says "one or more windows update components are confiqured incorrectly"

How do I fix?

There are reports of the patch saying its failed, but its actually installed.

Press Windows key + R
Type: appwiz.cpl
Hit Enter
Click View installed updates

See if KB4056892 is installed or not.

You can try installing it manually if its not installed.

If you still experience problems installing it.


I recommend you block it until the next cumulative update is released. Many are reporting the same problem too and it looks like this update is buggy.

Is there an option or work around to block updates or hardware drivers that might cause problems?
Yes, Microsoft has released a KB update (KB3073930) that will let users block or hide Windows or driver updates.

You can download it at the following link:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3073930

or

http://download.microsoft.com/download/f/2/2/f2...

After downloading, launch it, click Next, wait while it detects pending Windows Updates.

Click the Hide Updates menu.

Scroll through the list then select then select the update. Check the box next to the update then click Next to confirm changes.

I tried, when I got to the Ren software distrbution, got error message "windows can not find ...  Check spelling and try again". I restarted everything that was stopped.

I had run wushowhide.diagcab before I recieved your post.  It didn't solve the issue.

When I view installed updates, as recommended, I see KB4055994, but the "installed on" field is blank. Other Microsoft Windows updates have an "installed on" date listed, such as 1/22/2018 or 1/23/2018. Was KB4055994 installed even though the "installed on" field is blank? If so, what do I do to get Windows to stop complaining that I need to install it?

I'm sorry, I typed the wrong update number in my previous message. I'll try again.

Hi Alan,

Sometimes, corrupt Windows Update components can cause random issues with Windows Updates. Have you tried manually installing KB4056892? If you haven't, I suggest that you do. Download KB4056892 from the Microsoft Update Catalog here, and then run the downloaded file to install it.

Let us know how it goes.

Patricia,

Thank you for your help.

It sounds like the lack of a date in the "installed on" field means that my update wasn't installed. Could you confirm that this is the case? Once I know that my update wasn't installed, I will try to install it manually, as you recommend.

I have this same issue. The update is listed, but with no "installed on" date. I hit "uninstall" and it appeared to do it, prompting me to restart afterwards. But, when I tried to go back and downloand/manually install it again, I got an error that it was already installed. And, sure enough, there it is in the list again, but with no "Installed on" date.

I'm also having issues with an Adobe Flash Player for Windows 10 KB4506887 update, Update for Windows 10 Version 1709 KB4058043 and another Adobe Flash Player for Winsows 10 KB4503577. All say "requires a restart to finish installing.

I wonder if these are related?
