You might need to enable the built-in Administrator account

open cmd (as Administrator) and type

net user administrator /active:yes

Then login with the new user and try again to Check for updates

Note: You might also need to change all your Language settings to US.

Vous pourriez avoir besoin d'activer le compte administrateur intégré

cmd ouverte (en tant qu'administrateur) et le type

net user  administrateur  / active: yes

Alors connecte avec le nouvel utilisateur et essayez de nouveau pour vérifier les mises à jour

Compte administrateur activé et toujours le meme code erreur

This worked for me...

1) Access this file location C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and delete everything there. (Note delete only content found there and not the Download folder itself)

2) Open CMD (command prompt) with run as administrator (admin privileges) and run this command: wuauclt.exe /updatenow

The Update Window should pop-up with downloading Windows 10 again, and if your lucky it will be the complete kit this time.

Alex, there needs to be a new emoji named in honor of you and that tip/find w/a.  One that simply conveys "weeping due to joy".   Grief man, you have NO idea what I put myself through last 36 hours.  On the plus side, I did fix everything that was ever wrong in Event Viewer for the last 8 years.  Oh, well.  Windows 7 finally had a good couple of boots.

This was the reply that finally fixed my issues and Win10 is now DL'ing.

Caveat, I have to do this 7 times before it took.
