Hi,

1. add  Roles And Features - and I specified the correct location of the files
2. I tried installing with DISM commands
3. reinstalling windows update service

If you have another server that is at the same patch level and already has 3.5, specify that SxS folder as the source. This is the easiest way. Otherwise you'll need to build an image that has the same patches slipstreamed that your server has, which is a PITA. You can also try configuring the server to not use WSUS and get updates directly from the internet, and the server will obviously need internet access. That is *supposed* to work using the "features on demand" functionality. But I've found that it too can be very particular about patch levels.

I can't stress how important being at the same patch level is when pointing to another server. Ideally, you'd generate a list of every security update and match them on both servers, with the only difference being the "source" server already has 3.5 installed.  When that process is used, I've never seen the role install fail with the error code you've posted.

But when a security update is missed, even seemingly benign ones like a .Net 4.0 update (which nobody would assume is related), DISM will see the "media" as out of date and will not install the role from the source. If you are really struggling, what I'd do is stand up a new VM, install .Net 3.5 as the first thing you do, and then, using a list of patches installed on the target, install each patch manually on the source. Then use that as the source. I've had to do this literally dozens of times but it never fails. I've even written some scripts that mostly automates the patching from destination and source. They aren't really shareable for political reasons I can't go into, but it demonstrates that the process is sound.

I had no issues using powershell to install it last month even with those updates installed.
