I am trying to update my pc for three days, but it is showing the error. When I click update on the control panel, it just stops. While I attempted to apply the media creation tool, it showed me the error 0x80080005 0x90016. It is just saying that it is loading. What can I do to remove this error?

You should see whether there is enough space. There should be nearly 3.8 GB for it. Go to the software distribution download folder and delete it. Run the command prompt in administrator mode and then from the control panel install windows update from scratch. If this won’t help then download windows 10 and upgrade it. Don’t try to clean install it. Once you upgrade you get a product key and after it is active you can clean reinstall it if necessary.

In Windows, error code “0x80080005” can appear in almost any version of Microsoft Windows and older versions like Windows 7 and Windows 8.x. This error code usually appears with Windows Update when it failed to download and install one or more updates on your computer. First option is to disable your antivirus. Disable your antivirus temporarily then check for Windows Update again.

Select the update that keeps failing then install. If this doesn’t help, try using the System File Checker utility. Press the Windows key then type without quotes “cmd” in the search field. Right-click “cmd.exe” in the search results then select “Run as administrator” to launch an elevated command prompt. In the command prompt window, type the following command then hit Enter:

sfc /scannow

Insert your Windows installation CD or DVD when you are prompted then continue. Wait until the process is complete. When it is finished, close the command prompt then restart the computer. If this doesn’t work, try resetting the Windows Update Components manually. Follow the same steps to launch an elevated command prompt. In the command prompt window, type the following commands then hit Enter after each command:

net stop wuauserv
net stop bits
net stop cryptsvc
net stop msiserver
ren %systemroot%\System32\Catroot2 Catroot2.old
ren %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
net start wuauserv
net start bits
net start cryptsvc
net start msiserver

When you are finished, try updating again then see if it works. If this doesn’t work, run DISM. Go to Fix Windows Update Errors using DISM for a complete list of operating systems. Download the program specific to your operating system and run it.
