Windows updates won’t run on Server 2012, getting error code 800B0001.

I’ve tried running the windows update diagnostic to fix it and it won’t even  run.   Comes up with the error “a problem is preventing the troubleshooter from starting”.   Then I’ve tried running the DISM fix three different ways with failed results.  I ran it straight “dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth”.   Then I mapped a drive and pointed dism to the source files on the mapped drive and that failed.  Then I copied the source files to a local drive and that failed.  If anyone has another idea or can think of something I’m missing or haven't tried please post.  Thanks.

The first step worked for me.  Re-registering the windows update .dll files did the trick.  Thanks.
