Why did I get error 0xC000006D?

However, if you’re technically savvy, you can try the steps below:
  1. Click Start and type “services.msc” into your keyboard
  2. You should find “services.msc” in your search results. Click to open it.
  3. The Windows services on your system will be displayed in a new window.
  4. Find “Windows Update” by searching
  5. Click on “Windows Update” and then click “Stop.”.

We will now clean the Windows Update temporary cache folder:

  1. Keep your Windows-key pressed and simultaneously press the “R” key.
  2. A small window will appear.
  3. Type %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore in this newly opened window and click OK.
  4. By doing this, Windows Explorer will open at the correct location.
  5. All contents of this folder should be deleted. (Hint: Use Ctrl + A to select all files and folders)

Now we will start the Windows Update Service again:

  • Switch back to Windows Services.
  • Navigate to Windows Update.
  • Choose Start by right-clicking it.
  • Run the System File Checker (SFC) utility if the problem persists. You can check your filesystem with this handy in-built tool.
  • Start typing “cmd” on your keyboard after clicking Start.
  • You should see a black icon for cmd in your search results.
  • Select Run as administrator from the right-click menu.
  • Enter the admin password if prompted and click OK.
  • There will be an entirely black window opening. This window allows you to type commands directly.
  • Simply type sfc/scannow and hit Enter..
  • There will be a long wait during this process. This black window can be minimized and you can work on it.
  • Recheck the black window after some time to see if the process has been completed.
Restart your computer after the SFC process is complete. You need to search for Updates again after restarting.

You are still facing the same issue?

  1. Restart your computer.
  2. The next step is to clean the download path for Windows Update. Please follow these steps only if you are an experienced user! Using Regedit incorrectly could result in losing your files! Investigate your computer carefully or use a professional tool.
  3. While holding the window key, press the “R” key simultaneously.
  4. There will be a small window appearing.
  5. In this new window, type regedit and hit Enter.
  6. On the left side of the new window is a navigation bar.
  7. On the right hand pane, search for WUServer and WIStatusServer.
  8. We can’t clean the download path if they aren’t listed. Alternately, delete both.
  9. Restart your computer.
