      All,

      Back in November I updated my Windows 10 install to 1909 (previously was 1809) and since then, with both the November 2019 and December 2019 monthly updates, they are now failing with the error code of 0xe0000100. I’ve tried running the following in an elevated command prompt:

      net stop wuauserv
      net stop cryptSvc
      net stop bits
      net stop msiserver
      Ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
      Ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old
      net start wuauserv
      net start cryptSvc
      net start bits
      net start msiserver

      but that hasn’t had an effect. I’ve run a chkdsk /F /R on my OS drive and also a SFC /scannow but none of these things seem to fix the issue. I’ve also run both a dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth and dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth with no success

      I’m kind of at my wits end with the problem and not sure what else to try to fix this issue so I was suggested to approach this community for any help/advice. I would rather not have to do a format and re-install of my OS at this point in time if it can be avoided.

      If you need any further information or think more specific data can help, please let me know as I’ll be watching this thread.

      Cheers to anyone who replies/provides some advice for me!

      Oh, I must have missed that one. My apologies on that. I will most def keep that in mind for the future.

    Please follow the -Lounge Rules- no personal attacks, no swearing, and politics/religion are relegated to the Rants forum.
