The computer is connected to the internet, I have run the Windows Updates Troubleshooter, which found and fixed an error, ensured that all relevant Services were running, ran the Windows Network Troubleshooter, and also followed the steps outlined in this forum thread: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/manually-reset-windows-update-components. But the error persists. Any ideas what is causing this and how to fix it?
