Hey all,

I have a Surface Pro 2 (on the Insider Program) trying to download the "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based systems (KB3116908)" update. I keep getting the above error (0x80070570) when it tries to download. I feel like I read something about this somewhere on here, but I can't seem to find anything relative to my circumstances when I search for it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. My wife is wanting this Surface Pro when I upgrade!!!

And then I found an answer. Go to "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download", delete all the files, and then retry the download.

Hmm, I didn't have that problem. I'd suggest rebooting and then immediately trying to delete the files (in case a previous attempt to update locked them) and do the usual "make sure you're an admin" thing.

Stop the Service "Windows Update" in services.msc before renaming/deleting the Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder.

I did it the old fashioned way....went to Microsoft and downloaded the update file and ran it. It's all good now.

Thanks for all the responses.
