Windows UpdateTrouble shooting


This article will describe methods you can do when having

problems updating your Windows 10 operating system. 

As an introduction to the problem it should be said that Windows 10 is currently having issues with updates that have been installed creating updating issues after the mentioned update was successfully installed. 

  • After receiving an error message stating that the update is unable to install, go to this link to use the Windows (from Microsoft) automatic troubleshooting tool. Click Here to go to a Microsoft page which provides you direction how to go about starting the Windows Update Trouble shooting repair tool. 



The next process is one in which the user should be very careful with EXACT process. When done exactly as described this can be another excellent process one may use to correct an error attempting to use the Windows Update.



                        This trouble shooting process is intended for moderately advanced users.     


1. Click file explorer, view - tick [/] hidden items

2. Navigate to C:\Users\[yourname]\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache

Delete all the folders & files in LocalCache but still leave the LocalCache folder.

(I have a folder called perUserCache_00030000A9EAB3EF with numbered files inside)

3. Retry the store



If this doesn't fix the update issue try this:

1. Click start, all apps
Scroll down to W - Windows Powershell
Windows power shell - arrow down V
right click - >windows power shell - run as administrator

copy and paste this command in PS C:\WINDOWS\System32> prompt

set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

Press Y to accept the Execution Policy Change

copy and paste this command (all one line) in PS C:\WINDOWS\System32> prompt

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppxManifest.xml"}

You will get a blue background and yellow writing as it works

exit powershell

reboot your computer and try store again

Then retry [install now] when starting the windows store.


if it still does not work try checking

your system for errors


Right-click start, Command Prompt (admin)
copy & paste each command (one at a time & test) and press enter


dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup

sfc /scannow

reboot your computer and try store again


3. Try creating a new user and change the new user account from standard to administrator.

Login with the new user and test opening and updating store.
