    I haven't had any issues so far. The latest sfc scan I just ran (attached) shows a clean system; will mark this topic as solved.

    Thanks for your help and input!

    Edit: I ran into the same error. I've tried everything usual but nothing worked. It appeared it was Windows update the culprit. I looked for "troubleshooter" then "Windows Update". Started the thing... Windows asked to troubleshoot in admin mode... I said yes... Then Windows fixed Windows update (sorry I don't have a screenshot). Then I did restorehealth and 100 % done success!

    The thing is that online DISM needs Win Update to be successful!

    Hope this will help!
