I have tried every solution and need urgent help.

Issue: Does not allow me to run sfc /scannow and comes up with this error: Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service.

So you get that error in safe mode?
go to settings/update & security/recovery
under advanced startup, click restart now button
restart PC in winre
choose troubleshoot
choose advanced
choose startup options
click the restart button
choose a safe mode (it doesn't matter which) by using number associated with it.
Pc will restart and load safe mode

right click start
choose powershell (admin)
type SFC /scannow and press enter

in normal mode:
right click start
chose run...
type services.msc and press enter
In the popup window, select the Windows Modules Installer and double-click it.
You will see Windows Modules Installer Properties window, set Startup type as Manual, then click Apply and OK to confirm this change.

Close the services window. Then type cmd in the search box of Windows 10 and right-click Command Prompt to choose Run as administrator.
Type the following commands in the command window and hit Enter to continue after each command.

sc config trustedinstaller start= demand
net start trustedinstaller


When you have finished the above process, you can restart your computer and input the SFC scannow command to check whether the issue Windows resource protection could not start the repair services is solved.

I'm on version 1709 apparently..
And I've tried all of the above which does not work.

Again: Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service.

And apologies. To come back to you on the safe mode question. I just tried that exactly how you specified however it is still the same error outcome

Here are some possible answers - https://windowsreport.com/windows-10-upgrade-assistant-error/

I think if you look in the folder for the update assistant there might be a install log, would be really nice to know why it failed.

What I would do while waiting is download the 2nd link on the page I gave you. That is the media creation tool. I would use that to make an installer USB as we can use that to try to update PC.

I found the update log. I don't really understand where it went wrong but here it is ; https://pastebin.com/WDPJd4V0

And I'll try the media creation tool now and reply when its done.

Suggested fix for that is run windows update troubleshooter, its on settings/update & security/troubleshoot page

appears to be a windows update error

once USB is made, put it in PC you want to update, open File Exploder and go to USB. Run setup.exe and it will offer to upgrade current PC, let it.

This is what comes up on windows update troubleshooter but I've followed this many times but doesn't work.





As for the USB setup, I'm going to run it now.

I’ve ran it on USB and the same installation error was shown.
