I am a system admin for a large UK charity and we are experiencing this for several of our servers and cannot find a solution. We are running Windows Server 2016 Std on a hyper V replicated environment.
Servers are intermittently failing the update with that error code which relates to permissions. But they even fail on .\Administrator so not sure if permissions is a red herring. I thought I had fixed it on last months update by recreating the admins local profile, but that doesn’t seem to work this time around.
Steps so far…
1. delete software distribution
2. Rename Catroot2
4. Bypass WSUS by installing standalone from catalog
5. Recreate local profile using regedit
6. Enable and Try default local admin account
We have about 4 servers with this same issue and do not have any clue why or how to resolve it.
Any suggestions on where to look or where to post this question would be greatly appreciated.
