Microsoft rolled out a bevy of interesting updates on Patch Tuesday. Unfortunately, not all Windows 10 users have managed to install the latest patches. Many Windows 10 Fall Creators Update users reported that KB4074588 often fails to install due to various error codes.

KB4074588 won’t install

If you successfully downloaded KB4074588 on your computer but you got error 0x80070bc2 after restart, well you’re not the only one.

Judging by the number of user reports, it seems that this is the most common error that’s preventing users from updating their OS. Unfortunately, fixing it is not an easy task, as this Windows 10 user reports:

I have done everything that the Microsoft Computer has told me to do to correct this problem except the last one which is a clean install! None of them have worked. I did send an work order to my virus protection company. Will be waiting to hear back from them. Reason: It was said the some virus programs may not have been updated by them yet and should ask them!
This is the update in question put out on Feb. 13, 2018. Which is really new (2018-02 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1709 for x64-based Systems (KB4074588))
I really do not understand this problem because this is the first time I have had a problem. [..] Would ask Microsoft but they really make it hard to talk to them!

Other users reported that the update didn’t initialize despite several attempts.

Update will not initialize. I’ve tried ten times. 2018-02 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1709 for x64-based Systems (KB4074588) – Error 0x80070422

There is also a third error that we identified scouring user reports: ‘Couldn’t complete the updates, undoing changes‘.

Once i got the update KB4074588, i restarted my pc like normal and upon startup, the update got to 90% and then it said  “couldn’t complete the updates, undoing changes”.

Fortunately, this time we’ve got a good piece of news for you. You can quickly fix this error by following the steps available in this troubleshooting guide.
