      https://www.lifewire.com/fix-error-code-0x80070057-4691502 tells about this error. But it’s up to you to solve it, depending on the exact reason. Only *you* can answer your why-question.

      The 0x80070057 error code means that Windows ran into a storage issue. Possibly, your hard drive or SSD didn’t have enough space left to download or copy files. But this error could also signal a file system incompatibility, a corrupt hard drive, or any other storage-related issue.

      Hope This Helps,
      Peter

      I will give some ways ir may helps:

      1. Rename the SoftwareDistribution Folder

      Press Windows key + R to open the Run dialogue, then type %SystemRoot% and press Enter. Scroll down to find the SoftwareDistribution folder. Rename this SoftwareDistributon.old. Now restart your computer, and attempt the update.

      2. Change the Windows Registry

      If this doesn’t work, we can make changes to the Windows Registry. Press Windows key + R to open the Run dialogue, then type regedit and press Enter.

      Ensure the following registry entries match your own:

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX] “IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled”=dword:00000000

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings] “UxOption”=dword:00000000

      Make the changes if necessary, then reboot your system and attempt the upgrade.

      3. Reset Windows Update Repository

      On occasion, we can reset the Windows Update repository in an attempt to relieve the issue. This is a somewhat lengthy process that I am not going to detail in this article.

      However, I will point you to the Microsoft Support document that details the entire process, so you can attempt this fix with their information.

      4. Windows Update Troubleshooter

      I’m not sure how well the Windows Update Troubleshooter works for this error, as it can be directly affected by group policies and other system settings. But if you’re still unable to complete an update, it could be worth downloading and giving it a shot. It can only fail, too, right? Right?!
