Windows 10 Anniversary Update Error 0x80070003

I have one laptop that keeps trying to install the Windows 10 Anniversary Update and keeps giving me error code 0x8000070003. Says "Some update files are missing or have problems". I have tried:

1. scandisk\chkdsk - everything is good.

2. turning off the Windows update service, renaming the Windows Software Distribution folder, turning Windows Update service back on, rebooting and trying again. No effect.

3. Tried the Windows update trouble shooter to try to fix problems...says it did repairs but has no effect.

Can't find anything else useful via web search. Anyone have any ideas?

You will most likely need to contact Microsoft Tech Support. I did a chat with them yesterday for a completely different Windows 10 issue, and they posted a link for me to download Win 10 to repair OS. They also offered to do it remotely for me.

This may help too...

That KB doesn't concern 10. It only applies to Win 7 so I might be Leary to use it randomly.

Can a user upgrade to the anniversary addition by downloading the media creation tool turning a USB drive into bootable media and updating that way. Much like you could when upgrading from Win 7 or 8. I suspect this is possible.
