Same here


go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution

select all and delete.

reboot your computer





This did not work.  Same error.  Even with all subdirectories deleted.  

You can easily fix this error. It occurs due to corrupted Windows 11 update files.
1. Restart Windows Update Service
2. Update Group Policies.
3. Delete SoftwareDistribution Files

If you don't know how to do all that, then follow this article. Personally, I resolved this error by following this article.
