Windows 7 system update failed – WindowsUpdate_ 800B0100

1 problem description

updated IE to IE11 these days, and the system automatically detected an important update: the cumulative security update (KB3003057) for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 based on the x64 system.

now that it’s detected, and it’s a security update, install it directly (although I usually use Chrome). As a result, the update failed multiple times, with error code 8024000B. After getting the help online, the update prompt was: “WindowsUpdate_800B0100” “WindowsUpdate_dt000” failed to install Updates.

for a long time, finally found a solution:
