So after I removed the ~BT and ~WS folder and cleaned out 124mb, 91 items from Windows/SoftwareDistribution/Download, the failure continues with 80240020. I can do the install manually, but was waiting for the automatic install in spite of 3 attempts today. I have downloads set to automatic download and install. Web search says the cause is: "This problem occurs if the Automatic Updates service cannot impersonate the logged-on user to finish downloading and installing the update."

Error solution to windows update of windows 10.

C: \ Windows \ SoftwareDistribution \ Download

- Delete all that is within it (within that folder and where the guard windows all installers of updates that are made in your machine, and the corrupted installation of Windows 10 is in this folder)

- Delete everything after open the CMD (open in ADM mode will cause you move the system kernel now)

- Enter the following command: wuauclt.exe / UpdateNow

ready Windows Update will start low ISO and installer if anyone has another error screen there, send me please.

Just to make this a little clearer. I reserved a copy of W10. I got the white "flag", I have clicked on "OK, notify me when ready" Does this ever happen? I can due it manually, but am still waiting for the automatic notification.
