    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to download windows 10 via windows update while i'm on vacation on italy and the internet is not that fast so it's really slow but I don't mind that as it can download over night BUT sometimes the network drops and the download fails, when I click try again: windows update says there are no updates available! I have to manually restart the download ALL over AGAIN using this command wuauclt.exe /updatenow

    This is ******* me off as there is no way to resume the download :/

    Is there any way I can resume it?

    The error I have is: 80240031

    thanks

    That error code was common in the Windows 8 -- W8.1 update... many people tried to update at the same time and servers just couldn't handle that much traffic.

    First you can try the SFC /SCANNOW method to repair any problem, also you have the Automatic repair option and Refresh the PC without affecting your files.

    If none of that works, you can try downloading the ISO file of W10 as last resort. Another option could be waiting some days and see if the update option shows again.
