The most common reason for 0×80070422 error when you are trying to run Windows Updates is related to the necessary services not running in the Control Panel. More often than not, it is related to the BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service). The Windows Updates use the BITS to transfer the updates to your computer.

The steps to resolve this issue are simple (you need to have administrative access to your computer):

  1. Open the Control Panel and go to Administrative Tools. Here, open the Services Program. (Alternatively, you can select Run from your Start Menu and type in services.msc and press enter).
  2. Here we have to make sure that two services are running. First locate the Automatic Updates service. Double Click the service to open it’s properties.
  3. Inside the properties page, set the startup type list to Automatic.
  4. Start the service if it is not running by clicking on the Start Button.
  5. Click OK to close the properties dialog box.
  6. Now repeat the same process with the Background Intelligent Transfer Service.

Below is a screen shot of the properties page:

If you are still getting this error, there are other services which may be worth checking out. These are Cryptographic Services, Remoter Procedure Call (RPC), and System Restore Services. Sometimes these services can have the same error.

If you are having problems starting these services, then there is one more check you should perform if you continue to get this error. You need to check if the BITS service is properly configured. To do that, again open the Properties dialog for the BITS service, and this time go to the Log On tab. Here verify that the service is enabled for all hardware profiles that are listed on that page.

That’s it. These steps should resolve your error.
