Unable To Update Windows10.
« on: November 14, 2021, 09:45:53 PM »
Hello friends. How are you? This is the first post in this forum. I am posting this for a need.  Guys, recently I bought a brand new PC and installed Windows10 Pro 64bit. But the problem is, unable to update my computer. Just showing (800XXXXXX etc. error). Guys, I don't know why this is happening and how to solve this issue. Can you provide any suggestions for this?

Thanks for replying. I am using Windows10 Pro 64 bit. The error code is "0x80080008" like this. Guys, today I found a solution from here after searching on Google. Can I follow the steps mentioned there? Or please let me know the better solution for this if you know.

I'd follow the suggestions in that article to see if they do resolve.

The dism cmd is -

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

Follow that with sfc /scannow and try the updates again.

Were you attempting to upgrade to Win 11 ?
