Windows 10 version 1809 Upgrade failure - error 0x80070032

Hi all,

I am kinda lost and looking for the right direction. I am upgrading the Windows 10 Enterprise version 1809 to 1909 in my company. I have about 100 PCs that need to be upgraded. We are pushing the updates through Ivanti. The success rate for example, if I push out to 10 machines, 3-5 may fail with the same error. Using the SetupDiag tool, this is the error I receive almost 99% of the time:

Error: SetupDiag reports abrupt down-level failure.
Last Operation: Finalize
Error: 0x80070032 - 0x50015
CSetupPlatform::Initialize: Disk provisioning is not available; hr = 0x80070032

The only other info that matches this in setuperr.log is:

DU::CDUSession::BuildSearchCriteria: Caller profile search criterion is not supported. hr = 0x80070032
Error DU DU::CDUSession::Search: Failed to build the search criteria. hr = 0x80070032

The only information I’ve found officially from the not so helpful Microsoft’s Docs is:

0x00000032 | The request is not supported.
