Unable to install 11 Windows Updates because of error Code 80070490.

Q: Unable to install 11 Windows Updates because of error Code 80070490.

I have 8 important & 4 optional Windows which I cannot install. I have tried everything people have suggested to no avail. The code Numbers are: Important KB2871997, 3004375, 3033929, 3057154, 3060716, 3061518, 3068708, 3071756. Optional KB2574819, 2592687, 2830477, 3080149. KB2592687 was installed, but it kept trying to install so I uninstalled it.
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"

Preferred Solution: Unable to install 11 Windows Updates because of error Code 80070490.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm running windows seven home premium (32 bit) and having trouble updating for some time.
Hope someone can help me.
I attach the error codes picture.
I also tried to attach the cbs folder, but even after zipping it, it's still almost 30MB and I can't upload it.
Any suggestions?

A:Unable to install updates - error codes 8e5e03fb, 9e5e03fa, 80070490

remove the older CBSPersist files from the archive until the resulting file is under the 8MB limit - or upload the full set to a fileshare site, and post a link.

The following three updates fail with the same error code (80070490):

I already used SURT and SFC Scan, but didn't any errors and didn't fix the issue. Sorry I had to split the CBS logs due to the 8 Mbyte limit.

Thanks in advance for your help.

A:3 Windows Updates Fail with error code 80070490

Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file
- you didn't post the CheckSUR log?

A:Unable to install Windows Updates, error code 80071A91

Hi - welcome to the forums!

Hmmm - Invalid Class error - that's a VERY rare error in your MGADiag report.....
It appears to be caused by a broken WMI store.

Please run the following commands,

Net stop winmgmt /y
Net stop wscsvc
MD c:\wmibackup
DIR %systemroot%\System32\Wbem\Repository
MOVE %systemroot%\System32\Wbem\Repository\*.* c:\wmibackup
DIR %systemroot%\System32\Wbem\Repository
NET start wscsvc
Net start winmgmt
Net start iphlpsvc

WAIT 10 minutes for the store to rebuild, then reboot.

wait another 10 minutes (just in case), then run another MGADiag report.

By the way, how did you acquire your Windows license? - it's an MSDN-type one, and is not for general sale.

Hi All

since a few days, my PC won't install 4 windows updates:

2. after reading thread from Chuckylena i also tried the command "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /RestoreHealth" but the error below is raised (my system is in french)

A:Failed updates error code 80070490

Hi Welshwizard,

The error does indeed say that the file managing Windows Updates, the file that contains all relevant data as to what updates are installed, when they were installed etc, has been corrupted.

As I don't know what instructions you were given by them;

Open up an elevated administrator Command prompt.
Run this command:
sfc /scannow
Let us know the results.

Insert the Installation DVD.
Reboot the machine > Run the automatic repair.

Boot the machien into Safemode with Networking, see what the updates says.

Windows Update error code 80070490 appeared on 20 September 2013 and message "Windows can't check for updates". I use Windows Vista Home basic 32 bit, Service Pack 2. I tried almost all suggestions in Internet (including these on Microsoft Web-page) about this how to fix this problem, including Microsoft Fix It, System Update Readiness Tool, Windows Update Diagnostics DIAGCAB file and etc., but the message continue to appear. The last successful update was on 13.09.2013. All updates made before and on 13 September are written as "successful" in "Update history" folder, but when I open "Installed Updates" folder, I don't see nothing and there is written "No updates are installed on this computer", which is strange, because by this moment Windows Update was made automatically without any problems.

I've lost a day already trying to tackle this, and I'm lost as to what to try next.
The situation: For some reason my wuauserver kept using a complete core the whole time and my disk space on the C drive (SSD) kept filling up. I set the updates to 'never', troubleshooted, tried the System Update Readiness Tool, didn't get any errors.
I've manually installed KB3172605
A number of updates finished succesfully, but those two fail.
I've manually installed Hotfix KB9478121, but that didn't help either. Both updates still refuse to work.

I set the updates to 'check but ask for install', and then every time I restart my computer, I end up with those two updates in the list. But they don't want to install.
Tried manual download and install, and both updates turn out to be 'not applicable to my computer. I ran Belarc advisor and it tells me these two security updates are missing together with 4 others. None of these turn out to be applicable to my computer.
I'm lost as to how to tackle this. And my C-drive problem isn't solved yet. If I start my computer, I have over 7Gb free on my C drive. After working for 5 minutes, I have 1Gb free on my C drive. My restore point space is a maximum of 230 Mb, so that can't
be the problem either.

Suddenly Windows 7 has stopped installing Windows Updates. It downloads, then creates restore point, starts installation, but then comes back with the error code 800F0900. This happens with all the updates when carried out individually, critical or optional. I first went through the process of clearing all the Start-up Programs in the Services section of msconfig. As that did not solve it I then stopped all but MS services, and that did not solve it.  I tried the Microsoft .NET Setup Verification Tool. This said there were problems that it could not fix and sent a report to Microsoft.  Following an earlier thread on this site, I installed and used the Windows Repair program from Tweeking.com. This failed to solve the problem. Does any one have any other possible advice to help solve this problem ?

You have a number of problems in the registry - as far as I can see at present, there are no file problems.

Please copy the file C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS (no file extension) to your desktop, and then compress it.
Then upload the compressed file to your favoured fileshare site (SkyDrive or Dropbox would be fine) and post a link.

Either myself or Tom982 will then pick it up, and see what we can do with it.

A:Windows Update Error code:80070490

Hello Gamer,

To resolve this issue, you must perform a repair installation of Windows Vista. Performing a repair installation will restore the current Windows installation to the version of the installation DVD. This also requires the installation of all updates that are not included on the installation DVD.

Follow these steps:

1. Close all applications, and then restart the computer.
2. Insert the Windows Vista DVD in the computer's DVD drive.
3. In the Setup window, click Install Now.

Note If Windows does not automatically detect the DVD, follow these steps:
1. Click Start
Collapse this imageExpand this image
Start button
, and then type Drive:\setup.exe in the Start Search box.

Note The Drive placeholder is the drive letter of the computer's DVD drive.
2. In the Programs list, click Setup.exe.
3. In the Setup window, click Install Now.
4. Click Go online to obtain the latest updates for installation (recommended).
5. Type the CD key if you are prompted to do this.
6. Click Yes to accept the Microsoft Software License Terms.
7. On the Which kind of installation do you want? screen, click Upgrade.
8. When the installation is complete, restart your computer, and then try to install the updates.

I am running Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 and my Windows Update has quit working. I get the error code 80070490.

I have tried Windows6.1-KB947821-v34-x64 Update Readiness Tool, MicrosoftFixit50202, MicrosoftFixit.wu.LB.Run, MicrosoftFixit50123, .and but none of them worked. I ran the Control Panel troubleshooting tool for Windows Update and it said "Updates ran successfully" and told me to run Windows Update again. I did and still got the 80070490 error code.

I have 2 backups that I have tried. One is from March 20th and the other is April 30th of this year. I restored the April backup first and Windows Update didn't work with it either so I started over and restored the March 20th backup. Windows Update worked for a little while but then the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool tried to update and it took it a long time and Windows Update hasn't worked since.

I ran a test this morning and it told me that I had missing files and registry entries for Windows Update but I don't remember which test it was because I've ran so many.

I can't to a Windows installation repair because I have a retail version and it states that the version I am using is newer than the version I want to install.

A:Windows Update Not Working Error Code: 80070490

Read other 8 answers

I have tried everything that I can think of to do for this issue, including attempting to do a Upgrade/Repair Install, which failed because I have a Dell OEM Vista DVD that does not have SP1 on it, but my computer does and so for some reason that option has been disabled (I have contacted Dell and requested another, SP1 Vista disk so that I might be able to perform a Upgrade/Repair Install at that time but they still have not replied). I have not yet tried clean installing yet, I will explain shortly.

I am just wondering if anyone knows of a simple fix for this issue that can be done by tinkering around with the registry values for the Updates or something else that will NOT require me to completely wipe my system out. I have already tried steps two and three here, but they have also failed. In addition to that, I have also attempted to reinstall Windows Installer 4.5 x86 and that also failed, returning a ?Windows Update Agent Installer Fatal Error: Windows Update Agent Installer encountered unrecoverable error?.

So, if there really is no ?simple fix? for this, I was wondering if anyone knew whether or not performing a clean install of the non-SP1 Vista will solve this issue once and for all or not? Considering the fact that it might very well have been updating to SP1 that caused this issue in the first place, because I had absolutely no issues with anything until after I had performed that major update and then everything gradually just went to hell from there.

A:Windows Can’t Search for Updates – Error 80070490

I contacted Dell via their chat thing, and they basically told me I have to wipe my system out and Reinstall the OS. I told them I would much rather be given a new disk with SP1 on it for my system so that I can just do the Repair Install to fix this issue now, and any other future issues that arise so that I would not have to hassle with reinstalling everything, and they persisted that I would just have to do it their way or no way at all.

I tried telling them that installing SP1 on top of their version of the OS is what caused the corruption of the Update feature in the first place and that their method of me trying to fix this issue likely would not solve the problem in the long haul, since reinstalling SP1 would likely result in the same way, and yet they still persisted with that method and refuse to send me what I need to solve the issue once and for all.

I am very dissatisfied with this service, we paid $400 extra dollars for their premier help and support, and this is what we get for it? Screw Dell! I will NEVER buy another system from them again. Ever.

I have been having some recurring problems with the attempts to install some automatic windows updates.

Security Update for Microsoft Office Acess 2007
Security Update for Microsoft Office Outlook Junk Email Filter

I am not able to install these updates, maybe any other updates in general. After attempting the install the following install window says, "Windows Update encountered an unknown error." Next to it an error code 80070643. Microsoft provides a solution to the problem, by re-installing Microsoft NET. Framework. They also provide a link to the program NET. Framework cleanup tool that enables you to uninstall NET. Framework, and it's components.

I followed Microsoft's instructions to solve the issue, though I've been put at a standstill. I have used the NET. Framework Cleanup tool to uninstall NET. Framework and it's components (states that it uninstalls all versions, 1.1 SP1 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5.) Then afterwards instructed to reinstall NET. Framework, specifically in an order, 3.5 then, 1.1, then 1.1 SP1. I start with 3.5, then as the installation starts it says that to contiunue installation I must turn off or on windows features in the Control Panel. I do so and turn off all Windows features. Then continue and it again states to turn off features in the Control Panel.

I wasn't able to continue the process, and I am also concerned that this is the same error that made me unable to install Microsoft Security Essentials, (as t... Read more

Hi all

I am new to the forum. Nice to meet you all

I need to some help that I have put off since last month due to personal life stuff outside of Windows 7. I notice windows update is failing bad installing three updates. Two of those was last month and one very new update a few days ago.

I read the rules about posting and one things it mentions in the post was to post up the CBS log file buts it over 1gb and it wont open it even when zipped. I did ran sfc last month but it didnt pick up anything. Enabling and disabling windows updated trigger anything to work. I havent uninstalled SP1 yet but how safe is this?

My OS is: Windows 7 pro SP1 64bit.

The three updates are:

Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3126587)

Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3126593)

Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3140410)

And they all have the same error code: 80073701. I did find a standalone installer for KB3126587 but the error message I keep getting when I run it is: "The update is not applicable to your system". Even though it damn well is the correct version.
Any directions on where to go from here? I feel like I have run out of options

G'day guys. As the title says I've been getting an 80073712 error while trying to install some updates.

Updates and errors:
Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3068708). Published 9/06/2015

Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2574819). Published 10/09/2013

Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2830477). Published 11/02/2014

Attached as well as the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file

Additional info:

These files have been turning up in my external hard drive while I try to do the updates. At first I didn't know what they were but after some searching it turned out that they were just where the downloaded updates were stored. May or may not be relevant. Tried doing an update with the hard drive unplugged through the System and Security/Windows Update interface and it still failed.

I also tried to download and install the KB3068708 important update manually from the microsoft website but when I tried to install it it said something along the lines of "Update not applicable to your computer".

I just got a new Dell Inspirion laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium Service pack 2. As usual there were several Windows Security updates that needed to be installed. Took two days to install them all. Or I thought all had installed. But after Secunia PSI kept insisting that no updates were installed, I checked the update history and found several had failed to install. All have the same Error code of 800F0902
I ran Microsoft Fixit tool, which said it detected no problems. But obviously that too failed.
The list of updates that failed are too numerous to report but here a few:
Most seemed to have to do with the Net Framework 3.5.1.
Does anyone have a clue how I can resolves this? Most importantly is my new Dell a lemon?
Thank for your time,

A:Windows updates will not install error code 800F0902

Have you tried installing them 1-by-1; re-booting after each?I'm not sure why .NET 3.5.1 is trying to install when .NET 4.5 is the current version.

I am having an issue installing Windows Updates (WU) all have Error Code: 80070005.

Nine updates installed after several tries, but there are about 50 updates waiting to be downloaded and installed.

I ran the SURT, but it kept spinning...all day, so I canceled it. Tried running it again, but it wouldn't let me run it again.

I ran the SFC Scan and have the SFC detail log attached. Appears a lot of files were repaired and some could not be repaired. The files that couldn't be repaired are mostly sample MS music, pictures, etc. Stuff I am not interested in.

Maybe one of my cleaners deleted same as a useless/unused file or maybe a virus corrupted some files? I didn't see anything in the SFC detail log pertaining to WU?

The CBS compressed zip log is 13.6MB, which is over the 8MB upload limit, so couldn't upload it?

On June 23, 2016, MSSE picked up a Rogue: JS/FakeCall.D labeled (Severe). It was quarantined by MSSE, I deleted it.

Malwarebytes this past week picked up and quarantined a few rootkits labeled as severe or a threat. I deleted those. Not sure if these items affected WU or not?

Would the Windows Update - Reset tutorial would work to fix my WU issue here? Seems like a uncomplicated fix?

So any help here would be appreciated, Thanks!

A:Windows Updates won't install, Error Code: 80070005

Hi Vista32,
Thats not good reading.
Most system security experts would advise a complete RE-install of any OS compromised by a Rootkit, but you, from your own admission, have had few.
Iam NOT a security expert but in this case I WOULD, if you can identify them, look them up at BleepingComputers they have an excellent catalogue of Rootkits and there impact/removal.
Just removing them does NOT allways guarentee a clean system.

Having said that SFC has done a pretty good job of repairing some of whats been infected/changed, but it is advised to run it 3x.
From what i can see there are certainly still some errors, in Windows media player, and there are likely to be others
SURT can take >>hours<< to run especially on a previously infected system, as it also makes repairs as it goes along

You can run the troublshooter, if you want.

Hello there,

For the best part of a year I have been struggling with the exact same issue. I am unable to install these 2 pending updates. Consequently, I am unable to update further and am stuck on an old version of Windows 10 exposed to several threats.

I have already contacted Microsoft support several times and their outcome every time was to "purchase higher support". Prior to this post I have reinstalled Windows many times freshly and I am unable to solve this issue.

The only interferences I can think of is the fact I have changed the default program installation folders in the registry to a seperate drive (P:/ Drive) and my user is saved on a seperate drive (S:/ Drive).

The error I get is as follows:

? Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3176493) - Error 0x80070bc9
? Security Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3172729) - Error 0x80070bc9

Any help will be GREATLY appreciated as I am getting to the ends of what I can handle.

Many regards,

For the past 2-3 months I've been receiving the same error in Windows Update every time I try and update: Error 80246008. I've tried the Microsoft Fix It application and the same problem occurs. I took a look into the services and when I try to start one service required by Windows Update it always fails because its core services are not launched, so I tried to launch those and those won't even launch. How can I go about fixing this?

I realise this is not a new problem, but, as I don't have a solution, maybe someone can help?

The last successful Windows update I've been able to download was on 23 Dec 2008. Since then everytime I try to download updates, either automatically or manually, I get Error Code 80070490 and a message that Windows can't download updates. I've read various threads and tried various fixes, but I think the only one that will work would be to reinstall Vista. Unfortunately, Vista Home Premium 32 bit came pre-installed on my laptop, so I don't have a Vista disk to use to do the reinstall.

Does anyone have any ideas how to solve this problem?

A:Error Code 80070490

A: Your time and date settings are incorrect
B: there is a problem with either your network card, network cable, wireles connection or modem.

Check those out, very likely the issue lies there. I think it might just be time & date. Make sure you selected the right country etc as well.

I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit on an Acer laptop. The problem constantly causes 2 updates in particular to fail (KB961501 & KB970238) with the error code 80070490. From what I've read, I must have a corrupt CBS manifest and I need to run a Repair Install with the original Vista CD/DVD, but I don't have it. My D: drive is almost completely empty (0.1gb used), so I don't think the recovery partition is there. (I can't be sure)
Steps I've taken so far include System Restore, Windows System Update Readiness Tool (the log reported no errors) and using an ISO of the Vista "Repair" CD to preform a Startup Repair during which I received this message:
"Startup repair could not detect a problem. If you have recently attached a device to this computer, such as a camera or portable music player, remove it and restart your computer.If you continue to see this message, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance." I also ran the hardware check on the recovery CD, which found no errors.
I'm not the original owner of the laptop. Is there anything short of replacing the original OS disk, or buying a new one, that can be done to fix this issue? Would WAIK be helpful?
Any help is appreciated.

I tried running sfc.exe / scannow from the CMD and it did report that it was unable to repair wextract.exe. Also, the file reportingevents.txt located in %system root%\windows\softwaredistribution\reportingevents.txt lists "Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80070490".
