How-to: Fix Windows Update error 0xca00a000

So recently I ran into a Windows Update error. I am in the WindowsInsider rings, so it is not uncommon to me that errors can occur!

But this one was new, so what can I do?
The error at hand was: Error 0xca00a000

Well the first thing I normally do in cases like this is:

  • Stop the Windows Update service
  • Delete the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder
  • Start the Windows Update service
  • Check Windows Updates again
  • Et Voila! There we go!

Easy enough, and what happened? It all started working again, so that was an easy one this time!

I read some posts on Twitter that the Seach service was involved. I checked but that was not the case here..

Me happy WindowsInsider again 🙂
