"The parameter is incorrect." - Windows 10, build 10158 - "You need to verify your identity."

I just upgraded from build 10130 to build 10158, and I am unable to use features like Cortana because I need to "verify my identity" in Settings. I had this exact same issue on 10130, and I'm very disappointed that nothing has been done about it thus far.

Microsoft, please fix this ASAP. I want to love Windows 10, but this huge issue is making it crazy hard.

I had the same error message, and here's what worked for me.  Go to Settings > Accounts > Your account > Add a Microsoft account, and basically re-add the same Microsoft account that you are already using.
