    Thanks for posting, maybe it will. I've always been lucky with updates myself, but I can see others are not so.

    Because of Reset Base command and doing system update cleanup, I cannot uninstall any updates

    True. Here are some explanations of the different DISM commands if you're interested: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...or=-2147217396
    Warning
    Installed Windows updates canít be uninstalled after running /StartComponentCleanup with the /ResetBase option.
    Use /AnalyzeComponentStore to create a report of the component store. For more information about the report and how to use the information provided in the report, see Determine the Actual Size of the WinSxS Folder.
    Use /CheckHealth to check whether the image has been flagged as corrupted by a failed process and whether the corruption can be repaired.
    Use /ScanHealth to scan the image for component store corruption. This operation will take several minutes.
    Use /RestoreHealth to scan the image for component store corruption, and then perform repair operations automatically. This operation will take several minutes.
    Use /Source with /RestoreHealth to specify the location of known good versions of files that can be used for the repair, such as a path to the Windows directory of a mounted image.
    If you specify multiple /Source arguments, the files are gathered from the first location where they are found and the rest of the locations are ignored. If you do not specify a /Source for a feature that has been removed, the default location in the registry is used or Windows Update (WU) is used for online images.
    Use /LimitAccess to prevent DISM from contacting WU for repair of online images.
    /AnalyzeComponentStore and /ResetBase canít be used when servicing a version of Windows that is earlier than Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2 images.
    /StartComponentCleanup canít be used when servicing a version of Windows that is earlier than Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 images.
    /CheckHealth, /ScanHealth, /RestoreHealth, /Source, and /LimitAccess canít be used when servicing a version of Windows that is earlier than Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 images.
    /HideSP and /SPSuperseded canít be used when servicing a version of Windows that is earlier than Windowsģ 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) image.
    Examples:
    Dism /Image:C:\test\offline /Cleanup-Image /RevertPendingActions
    Dism /Image:C:\test\offline /Cleanup-Image /SPSuperseded /HideSP
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:c:\test\mount\windows /LimitAccess

    Not to worry at all, At least now I know that Reset Base command really works

    Because of valuable suggestions from this Forum, I do my full backup every month or so.
    And now I could test out whether backed up images really work & it does

    Windows 8.1


    Hello,
    none of the solutions are working for me (although they used to).
    I use Windows 8.1 64 bit.
    Using sfc /scannow gives me the message the action cannot be performed, and all the DISM commands give me "Store is corrupted", except ScanHealth, which says "The component store is repairable".

    Updates do not work, they either start downloading and hang, or keep looking for updates, or one update gets installed and the rest fails.

    I am at my wit's end now, can someone PLEASE help me to fix this?
    I do not have a Windows DVD or anything, it is all on a partition on my hard drive, and, by the way, refreshing my machine does not work either.

    Please help.
    Thank you.
