  • Hi,

    Please click the Failed to install message of the screen you had posted, and provide me the detail error message/code of failed update.

    Please try below steps to rename SoftwareDistribution folder:
    net stop wuauserv
    Ren %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
    net start wuauserv

    Then, re-start system in Clean Boot with 3rd party process disabled, and try to check/install update again to check the result.

  • The message does not say anything about why it failed...

    A security issue has been identified in a Microsoft software product that could affect your system. You can help protect your system by installing this update from Microsoft. For a complete listing of the issues that are included in this update, see the associated Microsoft Knowledge Base article. After you install this update, you may have to restart your system.

    I just manually updated by downloading the update from the updates download website.  That works every time so the automatic way should too.

  • Hi,

    If possible, when system built-in update failed again, please remember the error code:
    there will be Retry icon for you once update installation failed, on top of the icon, there should a paragraph, and error code should be displayed at the end.

    It would be helpful for further identify.

    Besides, please clear existing Windwsupdate.log, then, re-try system built-in update, if it fails again, provide me the widnowsupdate.log file.

    How to read the Windowsupdate.log file:

  • I'm having the exact same issue - the windows defender items update OK, but the cumulative updates have not updated automatically for quite a time.  I've had to run wusa to install them manually each time.

    The error code is 0x800705b4.  Running the troubleshooter comes up with some items fixed, but "windows database error" is not fixed.  I have run sfc and dism - they report no errors.  I've stopped the services and renamed the softwaredistribution and catroot2 directories, no fix.

    I've even followed the instructions here: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/manually-reset-windows-update-components, no fix (note some of the dll's don't seem to exist when I regsvr32 them)

    I've included the last windowsupdate log file to see if it sheds some light on the issue.

    No improvement.  I ran:

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:H:\sources\install.wim:1/LimitAccess  (H: is the installation DVD)

       both reported "the restore operation completed successfully", no problems reported

    sfc /scannow

      It said it did not find any integrity violations

    running windows update on the Cumulative Update again failed with 0x800705b4

  • Hi,

    The error “0x800705b4” usually means “Timeout”. Please take the following steps to troubleshoot the issue. 

    1. If the Windows Update service has been configured in standalone mode, then the similar issue would occur. Please open an administrator command line and run the following command line to move WUA back into a shared svchost:
    sc config wuauserv type= share

    2. Reconfigure the privileges on WUA so that the call to ZwOpenProcess() will be allowed.
    sc privs wuauserv SeAssignPrimaryTokenPrivilege/SeAuditPrivilege/SeBackupPrivilege/SeChangeNotifyPrivilege/SeCreateGlobalPrivilege/SeCreatePagefilePrivilege/SeCreatePermanentPrivilege/SeCreateSymbolicLinkPrivilege/SeDebugPrivilege/SeImpersonatePrivilege/SeIncreaseBasePriorityPrivilege/SeIncreaseQuotaPrivilege/SeIncreaseWorkingSetPrivilege/SeLoadDriverPrivilege/SeLockMemoryPrivilege/SeManageVolumePrivilege/SeProfileSingleProcessPrivilege/SeRestorePrivilege/SeSecurityPrivilege/SeShutdownPrivilege/SeSystemEnvironmentPrivilege/SeSystemProfilePrivilege/SeSystemtimePrivilege/SeTakeOwnershipPrivilege/SeTcbPrivilege/SeTimeZonePrivilege/SeUndockPrivilege

    3. Perform a clean boot then install the update. If there is any third party antivirus software installed, we may consider to uninstall it completely temporarily

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/929135/how-to-perform-a-clean-boot-in-windows

    4. Try to increase the timeout of TrustedInstaller:
    a. Open registry by run regedit.exe.
    b. Navigate to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\TrustedInstaller.
    c. Right click it and export it for a backup.
    d. Set this registry value: BlockTimeIncrement to “2a30” (3 hours timeout).
    e. You may receive error when you set this value, please right click the “TrustedInstaller” key and set the permission to “Full Control” to users.
    f. Restart computer and install update again.

    If the issue persists, please help to take the following steps then upload the logs to OneDrive.
    1. If the issue persists, please take the following steps to collect the related logs.
    a. Stop the Windows Update service by running “net stop wuauserv” as administrator.
    b. Backup the cbs.log (C:\Windows\Logs\CBS) and clear everything in it.
    c. Install the latest update KB4103723 manually and restart the machine to reproduce the issue:
    https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4103723
    d. Export Event Viewer\Windows Logs\Applications, System, Setup.
    e. Upload the CBS.log and event logs to One Drive(https://onedrive.live.com/) and share the link here.

  • Neither the windows update sc commands, nor increasing the timeout in trusted installer fixed the error 0x800705b4 in windows update.

    I manually installed KB4103723 (it was successful) and then the latest defender update (via windows update) and have captured the CBS and event logs as requested in:

    https://onedrive.live.com/?id=2DB94D83D2F570EB%21284&cid=2DB94D83D2F570EB

    Since the cumulative update was installed manually, I won't be able to repeat the windows update issue until the next cumulative update is released.

    Wednesday, May 16, 2018 11:42 PM
  • Hi,

    According to the log, it seems that the updates have been installed correctly now.

    I want to confirm with you if automatic update fails while update manually works? Please have an verification for next CU and check the result. 

    If system automatic Windows Update fails again, we could try to reset the windows update component:

  • I'm confirming that automatic updates failed in the past and manual updates always worked.  I have installed four or more CUs manually that failed automatically.

    I've already run the WU reset tool before posting my first message and it did not fix the automatic update.

    I'll resurrect this thread when the next CU is released and I confirm automatic update fails.

  • I have had the exact same problem as you with WSE 2016.  Cumulative updates always fail, antivirus always installs along with any other smaller updates.  When I run the standalone updater, the cumulative update will install.  I have run many of the same fixes listed above, but none has fixed this problem, which occurs each month when the CU is sent out.
    Tuesday, May 22, 2018 9:15 PM
  • Hi,

    @heythereyou
    Have you tried to re-set Windows Update component? And try automatically update again? 

    If manually installation works, please wait for next month CU, if problem happens again, please post a new thread on this forum, also, provides detail system information and WindowsUpdata.log file.

    lol ugh.  Now even manual seems to not be working.  Or just taking a real long time.  It's been an hour already 
    Wednesday, May 23, 2018 11:38 AM
  • Actually, it updated.  Just took almost two hours to update.  
    Wednesday, May 23, 2018 12:33 PM
  • Hi,

    Thank you for taking the time to have an update about the result. 

    Once problem happens again, please provide detail system information and relate log file as mentioned above. Post a new thread and we will try to find out more detail information about such problem.

  • I have had the same issue

    Physical server running Windows Server 2016 Standard with OS build 14393.1715 (September 12th 2017) and refusing to install later monthly cumulative updates with various error codes, but happily applying minor updates.

    The physical server hosts a single HYPER-V server running Windows Server 2016 Standard which was happily installing the monthly cumulative updates.

    Today I tried applying the updates to the physical server using the sconfig utility and rebooting and it worked!

    So now both servers (physical and HYPER-V) are running Windows Server 2016 Standard with OS build 14393.2248 (May 8th 2018).

    What did you actually do with sconfig? After giving it a quick glance at the tool, it seems like all you can do is change update settings.

    Friday, June 8, 2018 5:28 PM
  • I had to download it manually again.  Sconfig doesn't work for me - it just opens and closes with no activity
    Thursday, June 14, 2018 1:27 PM
  • Does sconfig display the options and then prompt you to enter one allowing you to type '6' to select 'Download and Install Updates' ?
    Thursday, June 14, 2018 1:36 PM
  • Dealing with a Hyper-V server, I followed your advice and modified "sc" configurations, rebooted and manually downloaded and installed the updates successfully. Thanks.
    Monday, June 18, 2018 3:13 PM
  • That app has not been tested on Windows Server 2016 and only lists Windows 7-10 in the first part of the script.  Sure that is safe to run on a Windows Server 2016 device?


    https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Reset-Windows-Update-Agent-d824badc

    On edit, I can tell you first hand you do NOT want to run that app on a Windows 2016 server.  Tried it on my and it got hosed.  Didn't care had backup.

  • Does sconfig display the options and then prompt you to enter one allowing you to type '6' to select 'Download and Install Updates' ?

    Yeah, and it just reverts back to the cmd prompt window with the options.  Nothing happens.

    This is very frustrating.  Still have to download updates manually.  The delta package fails. The cumulative one takes hours to install.  Takes some unknown time to then reboot as well.

  • We've been seeing the same growing problem with this since May, 2018. Generally it is Windows 2016 running on a VM hosted on older hardware. They timeout installing the cumulative security update no matter how high the max run time is set for the update. Manual download and installation always works, although the installation times are excessively high.
    Monday, August 6, 2018 2:31 PM
  • There are issues at least for me with downloads as well - deltas fail to install.  need to install cumulative patches
    Wednesday, August 8, 2018 1:52 AM
  • So 10 weeks on from my first post (June 8th) with the virtual server still happily automatically updating I tried updating the physical server using Settings/Update & Security/ Windows Update. It tried to apply

    2018-08 Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2016 for x64-based Systems (KB4343887)

    this failed with error code 0x8024a105, however as before when I used sconfig with option 6 'Download and Install Updates' and then option 13 'Restart Server' the cumulative update was installed successfully.

    Friday, August 17, 2018 5:58 PM
  • Well, good that the option works for you but for some reason nothing happens for me when I try sconfig.  Still doing it manually and it still takes half a day to install the patch.  It's pretty ridiculous but I don't want to reformat / reinstall server for this. I'll just deal since obviously the issue will be ignored.
    Saturday, August 18, 2018 12:22 AM
  • Well, that's a surprise. I haven't tried in a while so maybe it was fixed earlier but the latest cumulative update did patch without having to do it manually.  Here's hoping the same for October
    Sunday, September 16, 2018 4:10 PM
  • No solution for this and MS. is not able to fix it. I have the same problem. Server is not updated since September last year...it is just baloney.

  • So approximately a year after my earlier posts I thought I would update this thread to say that updates to both the virtual and physical server are now being successfully applied without needing to resort to using sconfig.

    Both servers (physical and HYPER-V) are running Windows Server 2016 Standard with OS build 14393.2999 and 14393.2972 respectively


    Thursday, June 13, 2019 11:23 AM
  • Hello everyone. These are the steps that worked for me, and a little context:

    - I received a HPE DL20 Gen9 server, compatible with Windows Server 2016 Standard according to HP.

    - I had to manually update after the first clean installation of Windows Server 2016 Standard v1607 because updates just didn't install automatically. The cumulative updates successfully applied were 2018-05 (kb4103720), 2018-11 (kb4467684) and 2019-03 (kb4489889).

    - Servicing stack, Adobe flash, and other minor updates were also applied every month.

    - It seemed Windows Update was working fine. But not with cumulative updates (same issues reported here and everywhere else).

    - And sconfig utility didn't even detect updates to download and install.

    - So I used sconfig utility to set updates to 'manual' and then manually applied, in order, these cumulative updates: 2019-04 (kb4493470 and kb4493473), 2019-05 (kb4499177), 2019-06 (kb4503267). Success.

    - What's next? Manually install, in order, the next cumulative updates: 2019-06 (KB4503294 and KB4509475) and 2019-07 (KB4507460 and KB4507459)

    All updates were manually downloaded from Microsoft Catalog. I always use this website to get important information: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4000825/windows-10-windows-server-2016-update-history.

    It's unbelievable I have to go through this nightmare AGAIN, after all these annoying, time-consuming, patience-testing type of issues with Windows 10 (since its first version). And this is an expensive Windows Server product, wich is supposed to fulfill very important or even critical tasks. It's been months and I can't put this HP server to use.

    I'll keep you posted.

    Cesar.

    Tuesday, July 16, 2019 7:59 PM
  • OK but what's next ?

    Will you continue ton download and install manualy next cumulative updates ?

    Wednesday, August 7, 2019 3:27 PM
  • I had this same problem - spent most of the last 2 days researching this - here is what finally worked for me - perhaps this will help others - short answer is the System Reserved partition was full - here are the steps that I took to fix it

    windows administrative tools - computer management - disk management
    - right click on system reserved partition and go to properties - is free space at 0 (zero)? close window
    - right click on system reserved partition and go to change drive letter and paths
    - add a drive letter - I used Z
    -click ok and close all windows

    control panel - file explorer options - view tab
    - select 'Show hidden files, folders and drives'
    - uncheck 'Hide Protected Operating System Files'
    - click ok and close all windows

    start - this PC - Z drive
    - right click on system volume information - properties - security - advanced
    - change owner to your admin user account and also replace owner on subcontainers and objects

    start - type cmd - right click on command prompt and run as administrator
    - type these commands within the command prompt
    -- z:
    -- cd system volume information
    -- del *.log

    close all windows and reboot server

    after reboot

    windows administrative tools - computer management - disk management
    - right click on system reserved partition and go to properties - you should now have free space
    - close all windows

    start - this PC - Z drive
    - right click on system volume information - properties - security - advanced
    - change owner back to the default System and also replace owner on all subcontainers and objects

    windows administrative tools - computer management - disk management
    - right click on system reserved partition and go to change drive letter and paths
    - remove drive letter
    -click ok and close all windows

    control panel - file explorer options - view tab
    - select 'Don't Show hidden files, folders and drives'
    - check 'Hide Protected Operating System Files'
    - click ok and close all windows

    close all windows and reboot server
    after reboot windows updates worked for me
