Everytime I try to run windows update I get this error. I tried googling and found no solution so far to this error. What can it be?

Code:

It's possible the MS servers were overloaded. I always wait until at least Saturday to download and install MS monthly updates. That way, if there is a wonky update, I will have had time to read about it and know not to install it until has been fixed. Often, MS will have pulled bad updates and fixed them by then.

Not the case. It has something to do with component store corruption and group policy according to google. I need to find what's causing the updates to fail.

Is this a home personal computer or are you on a domain? It honestly seems like you're on a domain because that setting is a GPO action by the looks of it. *some settings are hidden or managed by your organization*

I had the same problem and it turns out that Bitdefender was the problem; uninstalled Bitdefender and things work fine now. Sadly, I liked the free version but it was causing me all sort of other problems with other applications, even games ...

It's a home pc. I think this message is because I changed some settings in group policy before. I reverted back everything to not configured, but the message remained. The issue was fixed by manually installing the latest big update.
