My Windows 10 laptop was offered an update a couple of days ago and it failed to install with with error 0x8024a105. A quick search revealed lots of people having the same problem.

Today is the monthly Windows Update day and the laptop fails to install the offered security updates with the same error 0x8024a105.

Goodness, when are they going to get this thing right?

Maybe they need to revert to what was working in previous Windows versions or is the issue a deep seated fault in Windows 10.
I have stopped using Windows 10 as my main machine due to these ongoing and all to frequent beta errors.

Two restarts and running the Windows Update Troubleshoot Tool seemed to kick this.

Now if only things didn't screw up by themselves.

I installed the failed update the other day via elevated command prompt (you may have seen that posted by some users who suggested it as a solution during your search).

No issues installing today's round of updates, though (Windows 10 Home 64-bit).

I used the Admin command prompt workaround for the earlier update too, and it worked fine.  I won't see the results of today's update until I get home tonight.

The updates today worked fine on my Win 10 machine.
