This primary cause for this error is because of missing of few files after the update of the windows, even though the download of the Windows update was successful. You can simply use the troubleshooter and resolve the problem. Secondly, you can follow these steps to solve the error manually –

  1. Disable the option of automatic Windows update.
  2. Delete all the temporary update files in the folder named Software Distribution.
  3. Now, go to update services of the Windows, and restart it.
  4. Monitor the updates installing on your system.

If the error persists after all the above steps, use the System Update Readiness tool to fix the error related to the update of the Windows.

Error code “0x80070002” may be encountered when installing or checking for a Windows Update. Try changing the Windows Update settings. Click “Start” then in the search box type without quotes “region” then select “Region And Language Settings” from the results. In “Region and Language” window, set “Country or region” to “United States”. In “Languages”, make sure “English (United States)” is the default language.

Otherwise, click “Add a language” then select your preferred language. Again, go to “Settings”, “Update & Security”, “Advanced options” then uncheck “Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows”. When you are finished, restart the computer then try checking for a Windows Update again. If this doesn’t work, try emptying the “SoftwareDistribution” folder cache.

Press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type without quotes “cmd” then hit Enter 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

Next, open Windows Explorer then navigate to “C:\Windows”. Locate the folder called “SoftwareDistribution” then rename it to something like “SoftwareDistribution.old”. After this, navigate to “C:\Windows\System32”. Locate the folder called “catroot2” then rename it to something like “catroot2.old”. When you are finished, go back to the command prompt and run the following commands:

net start msiserver
net start cryptSvc
net start bits
net start wuauserv

When you are finished, restart the computer then try Windows Update again.
