It's on build 9926.
not to be a smart***, but Google is your friend.
Not sure if that's the same error I was getting
But, stopping the Windows Update service, going to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and deleting all the files and folders in there, then rebooting fixed the error I was getting.
Don't worry about the deleting those files and folders, in Downloads their only cached versions of whats already been installed.
I got this error too, but after restart PC, the system updated and the error gone.
I tried googling for about an hour, and trying various fixes and s**t, but none of them worked.

do you use an 3rd party AV suite? if, remove it

I tried that, and it didn't work.
Well, I fixed it by completely removing MS Office from my computer. However, now I can't re-install Office.
You have to completely remove remnants of MS Office from your system and the registry needs to be cleared of former Office's strings before you can re-install it.
let me show u how to fix it....
go to settings
update & Recovery
then choose first option....refresh your pc with out affecting your files.
that should take care of the problem.
Just did the refresh. Error still happens. Damn it.
sounds like a corrupted OS....u may have re-install 9926.
I think I'll just wait until the new release, and clean install that once it's released. Hopefully soon.
remember to do a low level format of your HD just in case u may have bad sectors....that also can produce writing errors.
