If you tried installing a Windows Update and it failed with an error code “0x80004005,” try downloading the Windows Update Troubleshooter and run it. Just follow the onscreen instructions to fix problems with Windows Update on your Windows 10. If this did not work, visit Windows 10 Update History then look for the most recent update KB that you have on your Windows 10.

Next, take note of the KB number then go to Microsoft Update site and look for the KB number. When you found it, download and install that Windows Update on your computer. If the problem continues, on your Windows 10, right-click the Windows button and select “Command Prompt (Admin)” to open an elevated command prompt. If you are prompted, enter your password and click “Yes” or “Allow.”

In the command prompt, type without quotes “DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth” then hit Enter. When it is finished, type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then hit Enter. When it is finished, close the command prompt then try installing the Windows Update again.
