Search this very forum on the error code you included.  It has been discussed on multiple occasions with regard to Windows Update and updating definitions for Windows Defender.  Something already mentioned as a solution might fit your situation.

Odd, because if I'm sitting in the Windows 10 Support Forum (not this topic, but the forum) and search on 0x80070643, the following shows up, along with the 7 results:

Your search for the term 0x80070643 returned 7 results
 
Also, this web search, https://duckduckgo.com/?q=%22Windows+10%22+0x80070643&t=hh&atb=v91-1&ia=web returns many, many results.

Er, no, it doesn't.   Just clicked through on the search link I gave and am getting the page after page after page of results I did the first time.

 

0x80070643 is a common error code, and since that's a hexidecimal number it's the digit zero, followed by a lowercase x, followed by the digits already typed at the start of this sentence.

I have to agree with Brian and Rocky, it works for me as well.

 

Copy the error code 0x80070643, then go up one level in the forum to the maiin Win 10 support page. Paste the code into the search box at the very top right hand corner of the page, directly under your user name, make sure the search area is set 'This forum', click on the search symbol - the magnifying glass - and you should get the same list Brian refers to above.

It would also do well for the original poster to take a look at a thread that began just subsequent to this one, Windows 10 Auto update failing on some items., and pay attention to the error code my own system got at one point and that was eventually resolved without any intervention from me.

 

If I don't get a direct warning via the action center that an update failed I really don't worry about it, as they invariably resolve either through being reapplied by Windows Update at a later time or in a later cumulative update.
