    Well, first it got stuck at 97% for good 6 hrs. So I rebooted all the 4 office PCs. But it kept getting stuck at 97% so I downloaded msu update files from here. I finally managed to install it on all the PCs and out of the 4, one PC is into BSOD loop. Other 3 PCs booted up fine. So I ran these commands
    Code:
    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /AnalyzeComponentStore
    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    
    StartComponentCleanup failed on all the three PCs with error code 2 because some file was missing.
    sfc /scannow returned no errors.

    So I re-installed Windows 10 1607 build from scratch on the 4th BSODing PC and kept it disconnected from internet. Installed KB3189866 from msu file along with servicing stack update and adobe flash. Now even that PC failes on StartComponentCleanup

    WTF Microsoft? Windows 10 has become this huge Frankenstein monster which even MS themselves cannot tame. :mad:

    :D Yes Microsoft is great aren't they, issues every month !

    All you have to do was reboot and clear here C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
    And then update again it seems they fixed the issue today. Note when updating pc's from now on wait a day after the update releases, cause Microsoft are incompetent!!!

    How do you do that exactly if you must use your machine daily? The only way I know when updates are offered is to startup the machine. But then the process starts and I can't stop it. I can, on some machines, set Metered Connection to "On" but that seems to delay for unpredictable periods of time?

    In true sarcastic style, you ignored the actual problem. StartComponentCleanup errors out. How do you fix that?

    By looking into the logs and see the error details?
    Code:
    C:\Windows\Logs\CBS
    C:\Windows\Logs\DISM

    I had trouble with this update also, twice it froze at 46% when downloading through Windows update, ended up downloading and installing it manually.

    i never use an update less than 4 weeks old. if ms release a bogey, it will have been identified, removed and replaced etc.

    windows update sucks monkeyballs big time, i use MBSA in offline mode. works a treat ;)

    Like I said in the other thread on this update, you don’t have to do anything, just give Microsoft a little time to sort the problem.

    And indeed, I did nothing, just waited. And when I saw in R29k’s post above that MS has fixed the issue, I just rebooted and the download plus installation went thru as normal. So all the fuss was much ado about nothing.

    There is a more general lesson to be learned here. Much of the time, interfering with the system isn’t necessary and can actually cause damage.

    Isn't that what Windows Update is for? :D
    After all, there are a lot of support technicians at MS that need to feed their families.

    AFAIK, Can't just temporarily stop WU's service until its fixed, then start it? sometimes previously all I did was restart this service and updates would finish, lol it seems like a permanent beta OS but I believe they improving it overtime, I only have one bug that when unplugging a hard drive and do safe removal, I don't get the its safe to remove note.

    If Microsoft would let you do everything in the Home version, it wouldn't sell its Pro versions.

    On Home a workaround is to set your connection to metered. It'll then act like setting WU to Notify Only, so you'll have a "Download" button when WU finds new updates instead of downloading them immediately. Then you can simply rely on WUMT to select which you want to download or hide, as if you had Pro set to Notify Mode.
