I ran Windows update today and everything seemed to go smooth except for some Realtek software components. Screen snips are shown below.

Under Windows Update it shows pending updates available for the Realtek items, however, hitting Download & Install results in a very rapid transition to a retry option and an error code 0x80248007.

Under driver update history, there are lines and lines of Realtek updates, both successful and failed for the subject Realtek versions. I grabbed a screen shot that shows the last successful updates and then failures since then. Strange is that the last successful updates are the same version as what Windows Update is constantly trying to install.

The "Last Checked" time does not update. It seems Windows is unable to check or refresh available updates with this error in the way.

I have run the Windows Update troubleshooter with no improvement. I have run DISM and sfcscan with no errors found. I have also booted into Safe Mode and deleted the Software Distribution folder under C:/Windows/SoftwareDistribution to clear out anything old.

As an aside, 2 weeks ago I did a complete reset and installed a fresh copy of the OS from Asus using WinRE because the laptop kept freezing. The freezing issue went away with the fresh install of Windows, but it takes a while for me to get all my software installed again and to setup my licenses. I am not going to reset Windows and do this again.

Thanks for any help,
