When I checked for updates on Windows 10, version 2004, Windows Updated indicated that there were optional updates available. I selected the update and clicked "Download and Install." Windows checked for updates again and displayed the same results without installing the update. I repeated this a few times to no avail. Please help.

Update: Screenshot provided.WinUpdate

Error code 0x8024004C.

  • Try Windows Update Repair. Sometimes it actually does help. Sep 7 '20 at 3:09
  • Please provide a screenshot of Windows Update. I suspect I know what’s going on. Please also provide the last cumulative update you have installed

  • I've had this problem in the past as well. I simply waited until the next update, which fixed it automatically ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Sep 7 '20 at 14:39

I ran sfc/scannow and retried the update. That fixed it. Source: 800error
