Windows 8 update error loop


  • When I try to update, installing 3 updates, I get error code 80073712.

    After that, I run the troubleshooter. It says that it fixed it, which is good. The exact things it says is that it fixes two things. It fixes the error code (Potential Windows Update Database error detected 0x80073712) and another one called "windows update components must be repaired". It says it's fixed, though, so that's great. I then run the updater again, and it tells me that Windows could not search for updates.

    Error Code: 8024A000.

    The troubleshooter doesn't help, nor does any of the information I have found on the second error code.

    If I click try again, it checks for updates and then refuses to install them with the error code that I first mentioned.
