    I've tried to update to the latest release and it appears to download the software. It then confirms that my machine will run the new version. When it tries to install it gets the 0x80070057 message and stops. I've tried several times.

    same problem on a SP2 using the MS downloader tool, as it won't pick up the new version through the regular update tool in settings. it looks like a common problem where the update looks at the wrong server (?).

    I don't know if refreshing might help?

    I'm considering moving onto the Release Preview ring as an insider, but as this is my main PC I really cant afford for anything to go wrong.

    Edit: I've just been pointed towards this http://www.windowscentral.com/use-me...056.1439458439

    don't have time to try it now, but hopefully this will fix it most easily?

    Downloading the installer package and running the update manually instead of using the in-built update seems to have worked for me.
    Get the media creation tool from Microsoft: Windows 10
