Windows error codes are generic. You might face the same error code when attempting to do two different things. The error codes are infrequently useful enough to solve an issue for an end-user. They rarely, if ever, point you to obscure underlying problems that might be causing problems on the system. That said, the Windows 10 Update Error 0x80070002 is one of the easier ones to solve. It’s simply an update that is failing to install. The solution is to remove the downloaded update, re-download it, and then try to install it. There are two ways to do this; manually, remove the update files, and automatically through the Windows Update Troubleshooter application from Microsoft. Both methods require administrative rights.
