System is an HP Slimline desktop, which *had* been running Windows 8 Pro on a trial basis. Restored/wiped said system (from recovery media) back to Windows 7 Home Premium, and set it up for production use. Got the Win 8 Pro upgrade, and installed it. Trying to run Windows update to grab the four updates that were posted today.
The update keeps failing with an error message. The error code is: 80070543, and the message is: "Windows Update ran into a problem."
Clicked on the "get help with this error" link. Ran the Windows Update troubleshooter, that supposedly finds some problems with Windows Update, and then fixes them. Rerun Windows Update, attempt to download and install the four updates. Update fails, repeatedly. Have tried rebooting the system. Still no go.
Not a good start to the Windows 8 era, as far as I'm concerned.
