Sometimes when you deploy a windows update using SCCM you might encounter the following error – Failed to install update with error code 87D0070C
If you look at the UpdatesDeployment.log file you will see the same error:
Update (Site_XXX) Progress: Status = ciStateError, PercentComplete = 0, DownloadSize = 0, Result = 0x87d0070c
This happens sometimes because the updates Maximum run time is too short. What you will have to do is:
- Find the update in the SCCM console
- Open its properties and go to the Maximum run time tab
- Increase the maximum run time of the update
Now the update should run without a problem.
