    Hello @Blokc ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    If VS Installer provides the "Repair" option(Normally More > Repair), then please click it and try to repair VS.   

    Some VS files may be corrupted, you can download and run this collect.exe tool. Go to %Temp% folder and search for a file/folder called Extract the files from, open the sub-folder called Temp, check the files start with dd_bootstrapper, dd_installer and dd_setup. If you find any detailed error messages like failing to install/update XXXX package, then please try to search and find that package in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\VisualStudio\Packages, remove/rename that specific folder and repair VS/continue updating VS. If you find other error message, please share it with us.

    You can also directly uninstall VS manually and reinstall it by following below steps:

    1. Close VS and rename following folders:
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio
    • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio
    • %programdata%\Microsoft\visualstudio\packages
    1. Rename this folder: C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\17.0_xxxxxxxx.
    2. Rename %Temp% folder(you may need to reboot your machine before renaming %Temp% folder).
    3. Download a new VS setup file and put it into a new clean folder, double click to install VS.

    Best Regards,
