Windows 10 update failure


My T1 has a difficult time updating Windows 10. Sometimes, an update will fail repeatedly and then after days or weeks even, the update is successful. Tuesday’s update (March 8) fails with the following error statement:

• Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3140768) - Error 0x8e5e03fa

Any suggestions?


Sorry I missed your message.
Did you find a solution ?

I found this on the web :

The error “0x8E5E03FA” is due to an error “JET_errReadVerifyFailure” (as per the CBS.log).
The solution is simple (ensure you have backup), on a elevated command prompt (after agreeing to UAC prompt), run the following statements:
•net stop cryptsvc
•ren %systemroot%\system32\catroot2\edb.log *.tst
•net start cryptsvc
Now start the update.
