If the standard troubleshooting tool fails, we must move on to other steps. Although system corruption is not exactly common, it can occur from time to time. In this case, if the update initially fails, the installation files may become unusable. But they can also, depending on the case, block other updates. And then SFC and DISM come into play.
Using the Group Policy Editor
Open the local group policy editor. Press Win+R, enter gpedit.msc and press Enter. You can also search for “Group Policy” in the search area of the taskbar if you are using Windows 10.
Once you have opened the local group policy editor, navigate to the next path –
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System
After clicking on the System folder on the left, double-click on Define Settings for Installing Optional Components and Define Settings for Repairing the Components You See on the Right.
By default, it must be set to Unconfigured. You must select Enabled and click on the Apply button.
