    Updates fail and I keep receiving Code 8000FFFF

    The Windows FIX IT (WindowsUpdateDiagnostic) fails at some point, but I couldn't locate its error report. I will try to attach a screen cap of the error.

    I tried to install KB3177467 to fix it but it failed as well.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I will just leave the screen caps here so I know which services to enable afterwards. upload_2019-2-24_16-25-41.png

    The bat file quickly closes after showing a couple of lines.

    3. Right click or press and hold on the downloaded .bat file, and click/tap on Run as administrator.

    I booted in safe mode, but windows update didn't load there. Upon restarting to regular boot settings, I received that error. upload_2019-2-25_12-54-55.png

    Clearly where does the version comes from ? It seems all system files are corrupted. I think of a bad manipulation or virus or something that modified dlls. Best is to backup all you need. Boot with a proper version of Windows, format the drive and do a clean install.

    I downloaded the version from one of the links here and I slipstreamed it. It worked fine till that infection happened. I actually installed it in October 2017. I'd rather I didn't have to format now because my shoulders are dislocated and I should have surgery for one of them soon. If there is an alternative, I'd love to take it.
