    Windows Update error "0x80248007" (build 10130)

    The day after my Win10TP system upgraded to build 10130 (a couple of weeks ago) Windows Update listed an update for "AMD Audio Device" along with a couple of other small updates. When WU attempted to install the updates it returned error 0x80248007.

    The "error 0x80248007" persisted after two further attempts, and again after rebooting the system. The only option available in the Settings\Update & Security\Windows Update dialog was "Retry" which would immediately return the same "error 0x80248007" message.

    Amongst the results of a search for "0x80248007" was a M$ support article "Windows Update error '0x80248007'" https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/958046 which has "FixIts" for Win8/8.1, Win7, Vista, and XP. I decided to not risk running the Win8/8.1 FixIt, and instead ran the following commands from an admin-level command prompt to reset Window Update:

    net stop wuauserv
    (enter)

    ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
    (enter)

    net start wuauserv
    (enter)

    After a reboot Windows Update successfully installed a couple of updates, seemed happy, and didn't have any problem whenever I ran Win10.

    Earlier today I booted into Win10. After a few minutes a WU prompt appeared that another update had failed. Same 0x80248007 error code for an update for "AMD Audio Device". Again reset WU by running the above commands. WU then downloaded and installed two updates (but not the "AMD Audio Device" one), and now says "There are no updates available for your device".

    Is anyone else seeing this behaviour?

    I got it for an Intel Graphics Adapter.

    Did the same things, as well as the Fixit.

    It is an Optional update that is now hidden.
