  1. Open an elevated command prompt.
  2. Run the “sfc /scannow” command.
  3. Try to install update again.

Step 2: Run the DISM tool

If the problem continues, use the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool to fix Windows Update corruption errors. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open an elevated command prompt.
  2. Run the “DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth” command.
    Important When you run this command, DISM uses Windows Update to provide the files that are required to fix corruptions. However, if your Windows Update client is already broken, use a running Windows installation as the repair source, or use a Windows side-by-side folder from a network share or from a removable media, such as the Windows DVD, as the source of the files. To do this, run the following command instead:

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:C:\RepairSource\Windows /LimitAccess
