I started noticing a couple weeks ago that every night when I shut down, there were updates waiting to install. By the next morning, I'd forget about it until I went to shut down again. Turns out, there are 8 important updates according to Windows Update, and it fails every time.
There were also a couple other optional updates, that if I selected only those to install, it worked fine. So now I've only got the 8 important updates, and no way to get them to work. If I try to install any single one of those updates, it still fails. Some information and trouble-shooting steps taken:
1. The code in Windows Update is: 80246007 Windows Update encountered an unknown error.
2. I've tried Microsoft Fixit 50123.msi to no avail.
3. I've tried WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab to no avail.
3A. When running the diag and the troubleshooting has completed, it reports that Windows Update error 0x80070005 (2015-10-30-T-11_31_55A) is Not Fixed.
4. I've tried the SubInacl.msi with the reset.cmd text tile to no avail.
At this point, I'm stumped. Any other ideas? Has anyone else run into or solved this problem?
