I have wsus on windows server 2008 and i have two machines with windows 8.1 where updates fail with error 0x80070643.
There are exactly 8 updates that fail: KB3080457 KB3081397 KB3081398 KB3081399 KB3081401 KB3081402 KB3081403 KB3081405
I have checked a few of them, and they seem to be metro app updates. This machine is joined to a domain and has most metro apps deleted via Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -online | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online and Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage which i think it's what causing this problem.
Should i just hide the 8 updates and block them off WSUS and call it a day or do i have another solution?
