I have an issue where my windows 10 updates are failing.

The following update is not working: Feature update to Windows 10, version 21H1
Error mesage:

What I've tried so far

1: Windows update troubleshooter - It detects a problem but unable to fix

2: SFC /SCANNOW - This fails with error code

3: Tried running "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth" - This fails with error code 0x800f081f

4: Downloaded Windwos 10 meadia creation tool - created an ISO file and mounted said file to grab the "install.esd" from the sources folder.

5; Found the index for the correct image in the "install.esd" file, exported image to file "install.wim" and ran the following commands
- DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup (this was successful)
- DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:WIM:install.wim:1 /LimitAccess (this failed with the same error as before "0x800f081f")

Any ideas on what to do next?
