    Have you tried running the Win 10 Updates Troubleshooter?

    Apparenty it "may" correct some corrupt registry entries for you. Link in this post.

    Have tried it ("wushowhide.diagcab"), but it did not detect any problems.

    However I have "Give me updates for other Microsoft products...) selected and when deselecting it, update checking works every time :confused:

    I have MS Office Pro Plus & MS VS Community 2015 installed.

    Will rather wait till official release iso this week & do a clean install - cannot select network properties - it crashes along with explorer.

    The longer I use this crap W10 the more I hate. I think I'll stay with Windows 8. Freaking auto updates, no info what update fix just some bullcrap "is security patch". I predict that W10 will be big fail.

    Lets stay Positive - Windows 10 have a lot of potential going for it & it is still very early - give it 6 months & it should be very solid :D

    to correct error 0x8024402f you can try this :
    open regedit and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade, then create a new value dword 32 and call it AllowOSUpgrade then put the value to 0x00000001 and launch windows update.

    I only have this path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update, but the path OSUpgrade does not exist.

    Should I create this path as well ?

    I have Enterprise "en_windows_10_enterprise_x64_dvd_6851151" installed on my PC & also set the policy to do manual update according to http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...sion-Flexible-update-behaviour-no-Modern-Apps

    Error is still occurring :mad:

    Thank you Coleoptere2007, I have abandoned the upgrade and installed a fresh copy without upgrading, but the problem did not go away :(

    Just to see something, try using this UI tool for updates and post back if it works, and you see any updates available. here
