Windows 10 Update failed? Here’s how to fix it.
Are you getting Failed Updates for Windows 10?
For me on a number of machines, I was getting error code 80240020.
The problem is due to a previously corrupt download.
To fix this and re-download Windows 10 update, do the following:
- Delete everything in “C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download”
- Press Win+x and click “Command Prompt (Admin)
- Type in “wuauclt.exe /updatenow” then enter to start the update process
- Go to Control Panel, Windows Update to confirm the download has started
