I'm having an issue with a computer that will not install any Windows updates. it seems to have occurred after Windows 8.1 update. The update did successfully install but no future updates have installed including the Spring Update.


I am receiving the error code: 80070BC9 when installing 2962409


That is the only update that shows other than updates for Windows Defender which do install successfully.

Prior to this, about 35 updates were showing and those would error out as well.

I've attempted to run SFC /scannow and I get "There is a system repair pending which requires a reboot." I have rebooted several times and no luck.


I have run the Windows Update troubleshooter, no luck.


Any suggestions?
