I had a client that was experiencing this problem and could not install KB2845533 from Windows Update. He used a Windows 8 machine. So my first problem was to reset the Windows 10/8 update components, because that’s the first thing we try when we have a Windows update failure. Since Windows Update Reset resets the Winsock values, removes the BITS queue, resets proxy connections, and also resets the services responsible for Windows Update, this is about the default way to solve most Windows Update problems.

Just follow the on-screen prompt to complete the process – it’s completely normal and simple. When that was done, I rebooted the system and tried it. He failed again. So I had to do some research and finally discovered that there was a way to correct this error using Deployment Image Servicing and Management.

To run it, we must first open the command prompt as administrator. To do this, press Win + X and click Command Prompt (Admin) if you are using Windows 8.1, press Win+C or delete and select Search. Enter CMD in the search field and press’Enter’. Then right-click on the command prompt and select’Run as administrator’.

Then type the following text in order by pressing Enter:

  • DISM.exe /Online /Clean Image /Health
  • DISM. exe /Online /Clean Image /Restore Health

After execution, I rebooted the system and rebooted the update and here the update has been fixed.
