Hello everyone,

I tried installing the update but getting the error 0x80071a91. After that, I try SFC/SCANNOW is command prompt as administrator but this didn’t work for me.

Know I don’t know what I should do next. I am just wondering if anyone else out there has any ideas on what to do.

Well, to resolve the issue, perform System File Checker scan in Safe Mode if this won’t works for you then run the Windows Update Troubleshooter. This is an inbuilt tool that helps you to fix Windows update errors.

Follow the steps:

  • Download the Windows Update Troubleshooter
  • Then, click Windows update in troubleshooter window > click Next
  • Now, in the troubleshooter Window > click Next

This automatically detects and fixes the error and after that restarts your system. Or else perform a system restore.
