Windows 10 won't finish updating



  • I have several machines that were upgraded from 1511 to 1607. Ever since then, updates won't install. I see a list of updates, and a few machine even claim that they are 100% downloaded, but it just sits at either 100% downloaded or 0% downloading.

    I've run sfc /scannow several times as well as dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth and they both come back clean.

    The system even logs have many 7032, 7031, 7034 errors, all Source Service Control Manager

    The Service Control Manager tried to take a corrective action (Restart the service) after the unexpected termination of the IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules service, but this action failed with the following error:
    An instance of the service is already running.

    The Service Control Manager tried to take a corrective action (Restart the service) after the unexpected termination of the Computer Browser service, but this action failed with the following error:
    An instance of the service is already running.

    The Service Control Manager tried to take a corrective action (Restart the service) after the unexpected termination of the Windows Management Instrumentation service, but this action failed with the following error:
    An instance of the service is already running.

    The Windows Update service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 2 time(s).
    The Windows Push Notifications System Service service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 2 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 300000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

    etc

    I'm about to kill the BITS service and a few other things, delete out the updates and try again.



  • Thank you for letting us know?

    Good luck, best wishes?



  • Finally searched the right thing and found a similar post on SpiceWorks.

    https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/1788509-windows-10-ver-1607-and-wsus.

    Seems this is a known problem, still reading the links.



  • Well, looks like my WSUS server is broken - could have sworn I installed 3159706 and followed the add-on instructions (something that seems ridiculous for a brand new WSUS server to need to do).

    making slow progress.



  • @Dashrender Broken is the natural state of a WSUS server unless regularly poked at.

    Source: have 2/3 broken wsus



  • @MattSpeller said in Windows 10 won't finish updating:

    that doesn't make me feel better 🙂
