I am getting error when upgrading from 1803 to 1909. Error: 0x1900208 (-1047526904)

Nice guide. However, I got an error message when it start the installation. (just after the download).

The error in the Software Center is : 0xC190012E(-1047527122)

Any idea? Is there a log somewhere with more details ?

I tried SFC /Scannow and Chkdsk, to see if the problem is gone, but without success.

Thank you

Is anybody else having a problem where you push out 1909 to clients with 1809 and they show as already compliant?

I’ve not had this problem before but it is very frustrating! I’ve managed to get 1903 to 1909 via enablement package just fine.

We are on SCCM 1906 with all current hotfixes.

Having the same ‘already compliant’ issue with 1803 to 1909 as well. Found the latest SSU is missing on some machines but doesn’t explain the others.

Hello, did you know when SCCM 1910 will be GA? In-console updates shows 1906 as up to date version.
