I'm using Windows 7 Professional 64Bit.
For the pass few weeks, the windows update kept failing:
Code 8024200D Windows Update encountered an unknown error.
We also tried download and run the System Update Readiness Tools - Windows6.1-KB947821-v24-x64.msu. Installed susccessfully and then re-run the Windows Update again and it's the same thing.

You may refer to the other steps in the following KB article to check:
NOTE: these steps can also be used in the Windows 7.

probably easier to backup your files and install windows fresh
i use a server to backup but usb disks are another solution
