comment Windows 10 update stuck on endless “Retry”
The updated installer from Windows Update actually worked this time, just now tonight, so I strongly suspect the previous update, the one that was pulled, was busted.

@magicandre1981 when I install from the ISO (edit: using the "old" version of the update), I get a "something happened" error with no detail.

I downloaded the ISO, but I get another mysterious "something happened" error when I try to install it. Looks like MS pulled this update altogether: arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/11/…

Actually I think this is a valid answer, I had a few people on Twitter say "I didn't have enough disk space and when I cleared some up it worked". However, I have almost 200gb free on the boot drive in this case..

Someone on Twitter said this happens for computers with multiple drives, and this computer does indeed have multiple drives, but I really don't want to disconnect them to try this theory out.
