0x80073afc:The resolution of the error code of Windows update

Error Code:0x80073afc
Explain how to deal with this error code.When I tried to install the update (* .msu) from the Windows standalone installer, I got the following error: Since my Windows 10 PC is offline, I download and install the updates individually instead of Windows Update.

The installer has detected an error. 0x80073afc
The resource loader failed to find the MUI file.

This means that there was a problem with the folder (C: \ Windows \ System32 \ MUI) where Windows Update is downloaded. This folder still exists even if you check it with the dir command.

The cause is unknown. If the download file is not corrupted, one solution is to use the expand command to extract and install msu.

C: \ temp \ expand windows10.kb4558997-abcde.msu -F: * c: \ temp100

-f: * to unzip all the files in MSU. If "Switch -f is not recognized" is displayed, the switch specification method is incorrect. Review the syntax again.

An xml file will be generated, so execute the installation with the following command.

C: \> pkgmgr /n:abcdefg.xml

Nothing is output even if it ends normally. The installation should now be successful.
