    You can always try Protector's solution...

    press WindowsKey+R, type gpedit.msc and press Enter.
    Click "Computer Configuration", click "Administrative Templates", click "System", and then double-click the "Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair" setting.
    Select "Enabled", click check box for "Contact Windows Update directly...." - apply and OK

    Type CMD in Search. Right click on it to run as an administrator. (You can also right-click on the start button and select "Command Prompt (Admin)")
    Type the following 5 commands at the CMD prompt:


    >WSReset.exe (go back to the cmd screen and press ctrl-c to get the prompt back)
    >dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    >dism /online /cleanup-image /StartComponentCleanup
    >sfc /scannow
    >powershell
    >Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


    Close the CMD window.
    Check to see if the issue is resolved. If not, restart the PC.


    Also, what update gives you this error?

    Every time I check for windows update and or try to manual start windows update service i get the following errors in event veiwer



    The server {E60687F7-01A1-40AA-86AC-DB1CBF673334} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.



    The Windows Update service terminated with the following error:

    I also have the same problem on my Windows 10 Pro. Protector's solution didn't help me as well.
    I can't download neither Windows Updates nor Store apps updates.
