Yesterday Microsoft pushed its seventh Windows 10 cumulative update, KB 3093266. If you run Windows 10 RTM, your system probably rebooted overnight. If you're unlucky, the update didn't install, and it will no doubt try to install itself again in the near future. Such is the nature of forced updates.

The Microsoft Answers forum has several reports. One from RCoover states:


Quote:   After an apparently successful installation through Windows Update, the computer requests to be booted. During the boot, I get a message that the installation HAS NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL and then continues to boot. Going into Windows Update Advanced, I find that the update did fail. I did this twice and it failed both times.


In a different thread, LeonardoDV says:


Quote:   I'm at zero for three attempts on two computers to install this clunky monkey. There were no error codes, just "...couldn't finishing installing...." The last "cumulative update" was just as bad. I have a third computer to try (oh boy, another HUGE download on my slow DSL line). Wanna bet it doesn't work on that one either? Microsoft, on what PCs are you testing these updates? Do you only have three or four test boxes?

Mine did OK, on both Home and Pro, but I was a bit afraid. Microsoft needs to get this update stuff figured out.

You can try turning off the P2P portion of Windows Update to make sure that you are downloading the update directly from Microsoft and not some other Windows 10 users computer to see if that will work - Details

Also if you have the Pro or Enterprize edition you can defer the updates up to a few months so that you are not force feed the updates immediately.


Hopefully the update created a restore point that you can go back to if all else fails.

People who don't know what they are talking about will provide arguments instead of any valid proof to their claims...
