Would have been nice if you would have provided us with some useful details -- like WHAT were you trying to do when you got that error code?

 

My guess is that you were trying to do the Win10 Anniversary Update, right?

 

And if that is that case, the problem has nothing whatsoever to do with older presentations of this error code.


We can proceed once you provide the information.

Thanks

This is problem that is starting to become common with the Anniversary Update -- it's happened to my PCs and they had no problems with the initial upgrade or the November Update last fall.

 

The consensus on the community forums is that this is a conflict with Windows Defender updates being delivered at the same time as the Anniversary Update.

 

The solution (which I have used successfully) is the following: Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool - Windows Help

1) Use this link to download the Windows Media Creation Tool:

2) Using that tool, create a USB stick or DVD of the version of Win10 that matches what you have installed

3) Disconnect your PC from the Internet -- either by disconnecting the networking cable, or by disabling WiFi -- this is Important!

4) Insert the Win10 media you created, find the "drive", right-click on the setup.exe program -- to start the Update

5) Sit back and wait -- this can easily take a half hour or more

6) Your PC will restart at least once during the Update

 

This is basically running something known as a Repair-Install -- which retains all your data and applications.


Good Luck
