I am using Windows 7 Ultimate and tried to install the language pack for chinese simplified from Windows Update and failed for many times. The error code was 8007065B: Windows Update encountered an unknown error. What does the code means? I have tried to google it but cannot find anything. What should I do to solve this problem.
