Windows 10 Update Error 0x80073712

Purchased Windows 10 Home edition last night off your microsoft website. Installed a fresh copy on my SSD. Everything went OK until I tried to update Windows. Now I get a "Security Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3074683) - Error 0x80073712". I Google it and find that the error has something to do with "service registration is missing or corrupt". I've done the following:

  • Ran WindowsUpdateDiagnostic and it produced the error.
  • Ran a sfc /scannow and got no error.
  • Ran a dsim with no error.
  • Manually reset Windows Updates Components.
  • Rebooted after doing all of the above. 

Here are screenshots of all the processes:

My system specs:

CPU: Intel i7 3770k

Mother Board: Asus Sabertooth z77

Ram: 16GB

GFX: GTX 770 SC

OS: Windows 10 Home x64

Please advise and thanks.

After trying a number of different things I gave up and decided to reinstall the OS. Now everything works fine (as far as I know...)

Run this:

Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

It helped me with the same problem.

There was a recent cumulative update for Windows 10 that seems to have fixed my problem.  All up dates are currently running normally.
