Windows 10 Anniversary Update Error Code 0xA0000400

I'm running Windows 10 Education (Build 10240), and when I attempt to manually update to the Anniversary Edition (Build 14393), I get an error code 0xA0000400. The update does not even attempt to install, as soon as I click "update now" it fails immediately with this message.
