[TIP]The following steps can resolve many Windows upgrade problems:
  1. Remove nonessential external hardware, such as docks and USB devices.
  2. Check all hard drives for errors and attempt repairs. To automatically repair hard drives, open an elevated command prompt, switch to the drive you wish to repair, and type the following command ' chkdsk /F '. You will be required to reboot the computer if the hard drive being repaired is also the system drive.
  3. Attept to restore and repair system files by typing the following commands ( DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth , sfc /scannow ) at an elevated command prompt. It may take several minutes for the command operations to be completed. For more information, see Repair a Windows Image [ https://msdn.microsoft.com/windows/...e/manufacture/desktop/repair-a-windows-image].
  4. Update Windows so that all available recommended updates are installed.
  5. Uninstall non-Microsoft antivirus software.
  6. Uninstall all nonessential software.
  7. Update firmware and drivers.
  8. Ensure that "Download and install updates (recommended)" is accepted at the start of the upgrade process.
  9. Verify at least 16 GB of free space is available to upgrade a 32-bit OS, or 20 GB for a 64-bit OS and 2gb atleast for Windows 10 mobile.

Re: Common error codes and solutions - Windows 10 Upgrade.

I don't get any kind of code or other information. All it says is "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3213986)" and then "Failed to install". I am now stuck in an endless loop. Every day (Since January 10) it says "Failed". Any suggestions?

Regarding Windows 10 1903 upgrade failing:

Heads up: On the first error "This PC cannot be upgraded..." I has this too on my main PC -- AMD Ryzen 2600, 32GB, GTX 1070. After much searching, it was a *SINGLE* file that runs a service from a few games on Steam. It is called "Battleye" and it will be somewhere in your Steam directory. The service is called BEservice. Delete both of these.
After that I could update.
