Hey guys! :D
So I have been having problems lately :/ Since the new update came out: '2019-03 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1809 for x64-based Systems (KB4489899)', I can't download it, it says "Updates failed. There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. Error 0x800f0982" Not only this, but my PC can't boot up normally. When I press the ON button, there is a black screen and I have to press the restart button to boot the system normally (this happens only since this error). Any help would do :) thank you and have a nice day! :)

Grab the full update from here
Make sure you grab the correct one x64 for 64 bit systems x86 for 32 bit systems
Ignore the server version and the Arm version
Try running that and see if it completes successfully

My best guess is that there is something corrupt stuck and holding in the upgrade path.
What I have done, with some degree of success is.....

Empty the entire contents of the software distribution folder (everything, all subfolders and files).
In order to do this, you will need to stop both the Windows Update Services as well as the Cryptographic Service.
If you still have a Windows.old folder get rid of that as well.
You can do that relatively quickly by using an admin command prompt and typing
cleanmgr /sageset:1
hit enter and check every box and click OK
then type
cleanmgr /sagerun:1
hit enter and let it run
You should also probably delete leftover remnants of previous failed attempts such as any hidden folder that will likely look something like this
$Windows.~BT

Then maybe give your downloaded standalone installer another go.

Sorry to hear it.
That's pretty much all I got with respect to your issue.
I assume you've already tried the Update Troubleshooter.....
Did you see anything mentioned there that might provide further insight?

Yeah I tried that aswell, but it didn't say error or anything. I have no idea what to do :/
