    Problems with Windows Update


    As the title suggests, I have been getting some problems with Windows Update. Updates don't seem to be installed, I mostly get an error with the code 800F0902 or 800F081F, sometimes it gets 'stuck' on downloading the updates. Hope anyone of you guys can help me out.
    System specs: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3350P CPU @ 3.10GHz, Video Card AMD Radeon HD 7000 series, Memory 8.2 GB, Microsoft Windows 8 (build 9200), 64-bit

    Running---

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    and then---

    sfc /scannow

    in admin CMD prompts might help.

    Restart after running them.

    I ran Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, but then I get the following error: 0x800f0906

    Try mounting your Windows disc/iso file and run this:

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:X:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess

    X: being the directory of the windows disc/iso files.
    NB: the spaces...

    Does the iso have to actually be mounted with Daemon Tools or something (and use the path F: or whatever drive it'll be) or can I just use the directory the iso is located at (Desktop for example)?

    Tried that, but it's not showing up as a virtual drive, it just gives me the loading circle next to my cursor.
