It is a apparently a Cloud Service filter problem with One Drive. The articles I saw suggest how to hide the error and that Microsoft is expected to provide a hot fix. You might open a case with Microsoft to see if you can get that hot fix.

Here is an article about this. You will need to scan through the article to pick out the fixes.

Try running the following two commands:

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator.
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes

Then, still in cmd.exe  SFC /SCANNOW.  Allow to complete, restart or, preferably, shut down the computer and then start up again. Test to see if the problem has been corrected.

If the above did not work, run a Windows 10 Repair Install and use the option to Keep Everything.

Go to the Media Creation Link

Click on Upgrade to Windows 10 (even if Windows 10 is running), click on the Download button, select Open (Run) but NOT Save. It is possible you may need to go to the download location and run the program - it depends on exactly what MCL does (it changes from time to time). Allow the program to run. Allow drivers to update. Then select Keep Everything.
