Windows 7: Updates keep failing. Error 80070308.

21 Jun 2015   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32bit
Updates keep failing. Error 80070308.

My Windows Seven Professional is original. SP1.
It's been three months since my Windows Update stopped working. All updates fail with the same error: 80070308.
I already tried all the fix and troubleshout programs, all some lines for the command prompt.
I updated my drives using Slimdrivers and Iobit softwares, but I still have tons of windows, security, IE, and framework updates.
The SFC Scan says nothing and the SURT only updated the Hotifx (KB947821).
I searched the forum and found other threads with the same problem.
If it is of any help, I used the following commands:


And these are the results:

Success... almost.

I had 158 updates, and now most of them have been installed.
I do not understand why some still do not work, but still, thank you!
