I just update my Windows 7 laptop to windows 8 pro and found that I couldn't install any update due to this error 800F081F. It seems that MS had a solution, "System Update Readiness Tool", for all other windows version from vista to server 2008; but anyone know any solution for windows 8?
Some attemps I did:
I've tried troubleshooting to fix Windows update automatically but it doesn't help (Funny thing is that when troubleshooting has complete it actually tells me "Potential Windows Update Database error detected 0x800f081f -- fixed");
I've tried a MS tool called "Fix it" but the problem is still there;
I even uninstalled my anti-virus software and use Windows Defender instead; I also tried to restart Windows Update services several times.
