What could possibly go wrong?
Nov 7, 2020
It seems I cannot install today's Patch Tuesday bundle. I also tried the MSU standalone installer and it fails.

Anyone else seeing this? The only bastardisation I've made from vanilla Win11 is to manually install the WSA framework......could I be paying the price for that?
Thanks, I get a failure on this KB when I take the offline installer too, it's not a missing file issue but there appears to be a dependency missing or rather too present.

Interestingly, KB5007215 just installed without issues. I did clear my SoftwareDistribution folder contents to try to clear the issue :)
and to further confuse the issue, KB5008295 disappeared, is not in my update history, it's all clean now.

I guess this is life on the bleeding edge :D
