Make sure you are running the new Media Creation Tool
Microsoft updates the Media Creation Tool soon after it releases a feature update to Windows 10. If you are running the Media Creation Tool downloaded a while back, please download the latest version of the Media Creation Tool by visiting this page of Microsoft and run the same again.

Check if your internet connection is stable
Sometimes, the error appears if your PC randomly loses the internet connection. It’s a good idea to make sure that the internet connection is stable before running the tool again.
If you have any internet connectivity issues, right-click on the network icon in the system tray of the taskbar and then click Troubleshoot problems option to run the built-in network troubleshooter to address the network issue.

Check if your disk has enough free space
More often than not, we forget to the check the available disk space on the drive before beginning to download a huge file. The Windows 10 32-bit ISO is close to 3 GB in size, and the 64-bit ISO is 3.6 GB. So, make sure that the drive where you are trying to the save the ISO image has at least 4 GB of free disk space.
