Upgrade to Windows 10 on Windows 8.1 keeps failing since weeks (Code 80070003)

My upgrade to Windows 10 keeps failing since weeks, mostly with Code 80070003; the usual proposals to fix this (stop the Windows Update service, clear %SystemRoot%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore and %SystemRoot%\SoftwareDistribution\Download, restart the service) didn't help.

(It doesn't help much that for each retry the 3 GB download is repeated. I have other things to do than attending the upgrade process all day.)

What can I do? Can I extend the deadline? Have my tries been recorded by Microsoft? I have a Microsoft account now, but didn't use it for logins to my machine yet.

My current system:

  • Windows 8.1 64bit, formerly 8.0 (I don't remember exactly whether it had 7 in the beginning)
  • German version

Update, from an admin shell:

C:\> DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth  Tool zur Imageverwaltung für die Bereitstellung Version: 6.3.9600.17031  Abbildversion: 6.3.9600.17031  [==========================100.0%==========================]  Fehler: 0x800f0906  Die Quelldateien konnten nicht heruntergeladen werden.

Update: sfc /scannow didn't find any errors:

C:> sfc /scannow  Systemsuche wird gestartet. Dieser Vorgang kann einige Zeit dauern.  Überprüfungsphase der Systemsuche wird gestartet. Überprüfung 100 % abgeschlossen.  Der Windows-Ressourcenschutz hat keine Integritätsverletzungen gefunden. 

I'll reboot now, and then try an offline upgrade from the dvd.

Update: I rebooted, and I tried the offline upgrade twice (which failed without useful information).

The C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\Panther\Setupact.log file contains several errors, but I don't know which one are important. The last lines are:
