I am trying to download Windows 10. I receive Windows Update error 80070490. I have tried going to the system update readiness tool but I have no luck. What do I need to do?
You might like to create an image backup of your machine before you begin.
What I did, download the Media creation tool [appropriate for your machine, either 32-bit or 64-bit]. Use that to create an ISO DVD. Insert the DVD and run setup.exe.
I also found I had to be using an Admin account in Windows to be able to get the download. My standard user account gave a similar error that you are seeing.
