It is possible to get in to a position where you can't update and all the Microsoft solutions fail to recover. I know one sure fire way to get out of this position and continue with your existing installation without losing everything.


  1. Go to the Windows 10 download page: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
  2. Click the Update Now button
  3. Save the installer
  4. Run the installer
  5. Follow all the prompts through choosing to update and keep your files.

What this tool does is do a complete install using an "in-place update" method. What this means to you is that it is using it's own installer instead of the one built into windows that is broken. It will reboot and do a windows install but at the end it will pop you back to your regular login like it had just done a feature update. It's surprisingly simple.
