Hello folks. I have been trying to figure this out for over a week. None of the updates (shown below) will update. They constantly fail. I have tried downloading them separately and or directly from the Microsoft update pages where you can pick the update. Still doesnt work. Did some reading and tried to create the USB media to do an install. The USB creates just fine, but after about 80% through the install process, it fails. I have read some articles that many are experiencing problems, but there doesnt seem to be a solution yet. I have other devices that have updated fine. I have ran malewarebytes thinking some junk was causing the problem, still no luck. Any guidance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!Annotation 2020-08-13 182937.jpg

Thanks for the response. I attempted this before, but not sure the instructions were from the link you provided, so I wanted to give it another shot. This def reset things and you can see the updates downloading again, but still again, either the download fails after a certain % OR it downloads but fails install.

Is there a reason why you're still using Version 1903 (May 2019) and haven't updated to Version 2004 (May 2020)?

OK, we can try to check for other issues:

Try running sfc /scannow command in command prompt in administrator mode and see if it will find anything.

Since we have no way of knowing how well your computer is maintained and how it's used, doing a clean install of Version 2004 and getting a fresh start may be your best option.

I cant get this command to work. It returns with "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service."

The error means some executable is not of valid format.

I doubt this is the only log that was generated, please try again run setupdiag as Administrator and make sure to grab all the logs that it generates, zip them up and attach zip file here.
