    I am trying to update my phone to new update 107 and in the end i get error 0x800f081f.

    I see solutions to fix this for PC, but not for WIndows 10 Mobile.

    The US release update did not work. Then I tried to enroll in insider program and that didn't work.

    Please do not recommend a Hard Reset. This is my second phone, I tired of hard resets and spending hours and hours to organize my phone apps and settings. This experience with Windows 10 / 950XL has been a disaster. Too many hours spent trying to get bugs fixed, tiles not updating, phone getting hot, no idea how to update firmware, etc. I still scratching my head why I am still loyal to Microsoft after all this.
    Please let me know how i can update to 107 without error 0x800f081f.

    Did you try a soft reset? Hold volume down and power till it vibrates?

    Do you have at least 8 gigs free on your main storage?
    Do you have anything important on SD card?
    Do you have new downloads going to the internal space?

    If you did insider please go back to production build through the insider app before doing the reset.

    Is everything up to date in the store?

    You can also use windows device recovery tool to get it updated.

    I am getting this same error (0x800f081f) on my 950XL for update Windows 10 Mobile (10.0.10586.318)

    I have tried soft reset, hard reset this is ridiculous, still get the same error that the update failed.

    Why when do you a reset and restore from backup everything on the sd card has to be erased to work? Can't it be coded to back up and restore from sd card and save the re-download of everything on the card?

    I was experiencing the exact same issue and the solution is simple:

    1) Go to the Store
    2) Download Windows Insider
    3) Open app, follow any messaging and select one of the options for you. I selected Insider Fast
    4) Let it install

    Issue resolved.

    In case you are not aware, Windows Insider allows you to get OS updates quicker. This does may mean the updates may have "bugs" in them and it may have some issues.The purpose of the program is basically User Acceptance Testing (UAT) before the release.

    I know from participating in the PC, Desktop and Laptop, Windows 10 Insider Program I had a few "bug" issues around release. The "bug" I encountered was start button not working and not being able to the see the program menu. Being a part of the insider program will mean the rate you get updates will be faster then the public. This can be an issue if you do not like getting updates. The upside, you potentially can get fixes quicker and feedback into the program thereby helping to shape future releases.
