You need to scan and repair the Windows Components store using the DSIM tool:
DISM /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
DISM /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
DISM /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

If using WSUS, make sure it is turned off for this server as you will need the full Update Services from Microsoft to ensure all updates are downloaded to repair the store.

I wouldn't even bother with doing any troubleshooting.
Unless this server is already in production, wipe it and rebuild it. I work on the basis that the server should be error free from the start.
If it happens for a second time, then start looking at external influences, such as a suspect source file.
