    @钧宇 朱
    Hi,
    Possible causes for the occurrence of error 0x80070006:

    Problem with Internet connection.
    Anti-virus software and Firewall issue.
    Windows update services not working properly.
    Corrupted registry files.

    In some cases the Anti-virus or Firewall program can trigger Windows Update error code 0x80070006. Disable your antivirus for some time so that you can check if Windows update error 0x80070006 still shows up when the anti-virus is off.
    RESET WINDOWS UPDATE COMPONENT
    Press Windows + X and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    Type the following commands, press enter after each of them:
    net stop wuauserv
    net stop cryptSvc
    net stop bits
    net stop msiserver
    ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
    ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old
    net start wuauserv
    net start cryptSvc
    net start bits
    net start msiserver

    The reboot your PC.

    Hope above information can help you.

    Was facing the same issue with Windows update, what I found to help was to run the Windows update service in shared mode instead of it running its own processes, you can see it in detail in the following guide. It is the 6th method.
