22526/22533 update failed with code 0x800700a1

Copper Contributor


I'm unable to update my Win11 22523 version to 22526 and 22533; it stops at 40% with error code 0x800700a1.

The update troubleshooting tool detects an error but is unable to fix it, and report error

DISM & SFC don't detect any error


How to get back updates to my computer ?

22538 version installed correctly; but doesn't mean everithing is solved.
Already had fail, success, fail alternances with previous Win11 updates.
Also, Update troubleshooting tool detects an error and still unable to fix it.
So won't say victory too fast, and wait for at leat 1 or 2 consicutive successful upsates before considering being out of trouble
