    [W10v1703b15063 x64] Can not update 2017 - 10 Cumulative Update Error 0x80070246

    Hello,

    I've started having windows update issues since the 2017-09 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4038788). I was hoping this current update would fix the issues but it has not. This is the current error I'm having: 2017-10 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4041676) - Error 0x80070246.

    I've tried numerous fixes found throughout the web and reading through similar threads on this site with no success. Today, I followed the steps on this page: Windows Update Forum Posting Instructions and here are the results:


    Step#2:

    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.15063]
    (c) 2017 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.


    C:\WINDOWS\system32>sfc /scannow


    Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.


    Beginning verification phase of system scan.
    Verification 100% complete.


    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.


    Step#3:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth


    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.15063.0


    Image Version: 10.0.15063.0


    [=== 5.8% ]
    Error: 582


    An illegal character was encountered. For a multi-byte character set this includes a lead byte without a succeeding trail byte. For the Unicode character set this includes the characters 0xFFFF and 0xFFFE.


    The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log



    Step#4:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks - Derrick.

    Hello and welcome

    Due to the precise nature of your corruption, you will receive help from a user named softwaremaniac. He's one of our senior trainees here who's in his final phase of his studies and needs to gain some real world experience in specific areas of Windows Update. This means that he'll be assisting you, but that I will first need to double check and approve his fixes before he posts them to you. If anything this is a good thing for you because it means that you've got at least two of us watching over your thread, but it will unfortunately add a slight delay between each reply. I hope that you understand and can accept the need for us to train up new members in this way in order to carry on doing what we do here, however, if for any reason you object to this setup, I will happily take on your thread myself.

    Thank you very much for your understanding. We'll be with you very shortly.

    Hello and welcome!

    Retrieve Components Hive
    1. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Config and locate the COMPONENTS file.
    2. Please copy this file to your desktop.
    Note: If you receive an error that this file is in-use, simply reboot your computer and try again.
    3. Right-click on this file on your desktop and select Send To...Compressed (zipped) folder. This will create a file named COMPONENTS.ZIP on your desktop.
    4. The file will likely be too large to upload here so please upload to a filesharing service of your choice and just provide the link here.

    I just looked at my Windows Update and I noticed the Check for Updates button said Restart. So I clicked it and now I'm up to date. Amazing!!! I've been messing with this on and off for weeks.

    Thanks a lot for your help. I just made a donation :)

    Re: Can not update 2017-10 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 Error 0x8007

    You had a corruption within one of your registry keys that needed to be fixed by importing a clean copy of the corrupted key.
