Windows server 2016 DISM corrupt, unable to restore

New Contributor

Hello,

 

i have a server (Windows server 2016) where im trying to install WIndows defender but i always get the error STATUS_SXS_ASSEMBLY_MISSING.

 

I already tried the DISM /RestoreHealth but it fails everytime and sfc.exe instead it says its all normal; i than investigated the CBS log and found that DISM is missing some packages of the KB4343887, this KB is very old (2018) and its flagged as superseded. I already tried looking within the internet but seems no one got this error before.

 

This is the CBS log.

Have you tried check for update?
Are there any pending updates?
Is there any error when you attempt to update?
Hello, the server updates are managed by a WSUS server and its up to date. If i switch it back to windows update it says that my device is up to date.
If i run the windows update troubleshooter it says at the end that there is a Potential Windows Update Database error but it cant fix it.
I tried the windows update reset commands as instructed by microsoft here https://docs.microsoft.com/it-it/windows/deployment/update/windows-update-resources
but with no luck, when i get to the point of re-register the registry key the majority gives me various errors.
In this case, take a look at:
