Failed to install fbl_impressive 10130 with error 0x80246013

I’m running Windows 10 Technical Preview on my Surface 2 Pro.

Today I got a new update available, build 10130. Sadly when trying to install it I an error message stating error 0x80246013. First I tried a reboot with no luck, then after some searching the web I found a solution that might work.

  1. Stop the services wuausrv, cryptSvc, bits and msiserver
  2. Rename the following folders:
  3. Start the services again.

C:WindowsSoftwareDistribution

C:WindowsSystem32catroot2

Of course I chose to do this in PowerShell since it gives me a reusable code snippet that I can use the next time I or someone I know faces a similar problem.

Here is the code I wrote:

I gave it a try, re-downloaded the update and this time it worked without throwing an error!
