I am trying to upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10. It keeps failing and gives some failure message 0x800f0955 – 0x20003. I am doing everything as suggested on various websites, but it keeps failing.

You can get the free up-gradation from Windows 7 to Windows 10 by following the below steps.
Stage -1: Get media creation tool
Get at least 8GB USB drive and insert it into a USB slot. Then run the media creation tool to create the installer USB drive.
You can get the latest MediaCreationTool1909.exe (versions may vary over time, but this is the latest one now) from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10. This will allow you to create windows 10 media ISO file which can be burned to the USB drive (CD can also be used).
Remember, booting from USB can be slow on older systems or if you are not using a USB 3.0 flash drive.
Stage-2: Cleanup your Windows PC.
Stage-3: Upgrade to Windows 10
Now all the cleaning is done. Go go to the USB drive. Double click Setup.exe.
On the first screen, it will ask to Get Updates and Optional Features. Choose Not Right Now. Then press Next.
Now choose the appropriate options to finish the install. That is all.
Once Windows 10 installs, select No to all the sharing options offered during the configuration steps. Make sure to apply the latest updates once windows 10 is installed, which you can do it by going to the Windows Setting and choosing Windows updates.
Note: the windows installer consumes a lot of time at least 70%. So, be patient.
