    New error: 0x800703f1

    My 950 on Fast Ring indicated it was up to date so did the same 'trick' as for previous update (from Fast to Soft Ring and setting date +7 days, restart and change date to today and back to Fast Ring and update) and the update is coming through.

    Goes through Downloading updates okay. At 7% of Preparing to install updates phase it pop up the error 0x800703f1.

    I've tried a couple of times to redo the update and same occurs - downloads update, then starts to install and error.

    Any thoughts to fix?

    Thanks for helpful comment. After several re-boots and changing various settings it still didn't work so I did a hard reset, which I have not done for a while. Fortunately it doesn't takes days to restore and my phone plus 14955 update are all in place. Interestingly the phone seems quicker from screen to screen and in loading apps - no scientific evidence of this but just in using it yesterday. Perhaps one should build in a hard reset once every few months?
