Here is a trail to follow...

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/upgrade/resolve-windows-10-upgrade-errors

Resolve Windows 10 upgrade errors : Technical information for IT Pros

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/upgrade/upgrade-error-codes

Upgrade Error Codes

"A result code of 0xC1900101 is generic and indicates that a rollback occurred. In most cases, the cause is a driver compatibility issue."

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc231199.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

2.2 Win32 Error Codes

Looking up the last 4 digits of 0x800700050x80240034, the first looks like a permissions issue. I can't guess what the second means. I don't think I would do what it says...

0x00000005

ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED

Access is denied.

0x00000034

ERROR_DUP_NAME

You were not connected because a duplicate name exists on the network. Go to System in Control Panel to change the computer name, and then try again.

My suggestion is...

(1) Block "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1803" with WUShowHide...

How to temporarily prevent a Windows Update from reinstalling in Windows 10

You've got to catch it trying to come in again.

(2) Make a Windows system image, at "START, Settings, Update & Security, Backup, Go to Backup & Restore (Win 7)", in case things get worse. Make the Repair Disc to restore it with, or ask Cortana for "Recovery Drive" to make it on USB. Also, see...

https://www.winhelp.us/restore-a-system-image-in-windows-7.html

Restore a System Image Backup in Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10

Note: That's a 3rd-party site. The literature looks good. I know nothing of the links or downloads there.

(3) Try the quick fixes here...

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/upgrade/quick-fixes

Quick Fixes

But be aware the ChkDsk "quick fix" can run for many hours. Maybe just do the Windows version in the Properties of C:\ at the Tools tab. That ran 8/so minutes for me...

(4) If they exist: Use Disk Cleanup (ask Cortana) to delete $Windows.~BT, $Windows.~WS & Windows.old. Those will be in the categories "Windows update cleanup" & "Previous Windows installation(s)", after clicking "Clean up system files". A successful upgrade creates them, but normally Windows will delete them after as little as 10 days. The first two accomplish the upgrade. Windows.old is actually the previous OS.

(5) Try again to upgrade to 1803, but from Installation media...

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Download Windows 10 -  Currently, this is v.1803

Make a Win 10 Installation USB drive or burn an .iso to DVD. As the article says, match it to the Edition (Home, Pro, etc.), Language, & Architecture (64-bit/x64 or 32-bit/x86) of the computer on which it will be installed.

Instructions are at the site how to use those to do an upgrade. Basically, you boot to Windows, plug in the media, open it in File Explorer, & click Setup.exe. It will run a bit over an hour. Here are the screens you might see...

Good stuff, thank you.

For now I did the hide-upgrade trick with the wushowhide.diagcab tool, so at least the PC is in peace now. 

I will take the time for clearing out downloads etc, and run checks like sfc/scannow as well.

After a couple of tedious tries I decided to permanently skip 1803 (using wushowhide.diagcab, keeping it hidden )

I have 3 more PCs where the upgrade worked and its hard to tell the difference. This particular box has limited functions and I'll just wait until the next build comes out.

This particular upgrade takes a long time to run, if people could charge Microsoft $5/h for downtime, Windows Update would bankrupt the company.

I'm currently installing it in an Asus G752VY

Same problem here. I'm trying that now.

I had the same problem with the previous Windows update, had to do a clean install.

Now, let's see if this solution works. I will let you know.

Regards,

Manuel.
