Error code 80096004 installing Windows 10 Insider Preview build 17046


If you’ve been trying to install the latest Windows 10 Build 17046 (Redstone 4) using Windows Update and you came across error 80096004, you’re not the only one.

According to Microsoft the issue is a bug in the way Microsoft signs the files (.cabs) for builds that are delivered via UUP.

Unfortunately, there are no steps that can be taken on individual PCs to bypass this issue, simply wait for another build to be released to the ring you’ve selected.
