New submission from Alex Waygood <Alex.Waygood at Gmail.com>:

I have tried several times now to upgrade to Python 3.10.3 using the 64-bit installer for Windows at https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-3103/. Each time, I encounter an error message stating that "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable". Further error messages include statements that "The older version of Python 3.10.3 Test Suite (64-bit) cannot be removed", and finally, "0x80070643 - Fatal error during installation".

Screenshots of the full error messages are attached.

Hardware details:
- Microsoft Windows 10 Home, Version 10.0.19043 Build 19043
- A x64-based PC
- An HP Pavilion Notebook laptop
- Processor AMD A8-7410 APU

Does anybody have any idea what might be going wrong?

I initially tried installing Python 3.10.3 with 3.10.2 still installed, but have now uninstalled Python 3.10.2 from my machine. It has made no difference.
