    OK with new build apps still doing same thing. Not updating. I ran the restore health command you gave and gt's to 95% or so and the following happens:

    >Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.14936.1000

    Image Version: 10.0.14936.1000

    [===========================95.6%======================= ]
    Error: 0x800f081f

    The source files could not be found.
    Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see Configure a Windows Repair Source.

    So I take it you are saying there is no use in trying a repair? Should I just bite the bullet and start from scratch and hope it clears the errors then in store so this may hopefully end?

    It worked! I ended up getting the repair install to work and all the apps with update errors have stopped the issue.
    Many, many thanks to you for putting up with me and the immense help rectifying this issue!

    Thank you so much

    Well done.. but clearly MS's repair methods leave sth to be desired in not giving clear reasons for failure, leaving users guessing.

    Now you have a working configuration, consolidate it by starting to use disk imaging routinely.
    Creating disk images lets you restore Windows and all your disks and partitions to a previous working state, quickly and probably without technical help.

    You can recover from:
    - a failed disk drive (restore to a new one)
    - ransomware (which encrypts your disk)
    - user error
    - unrecoverable problems from failed updates to problem programs
    - unbootable PC (hardware faults aside)

    Images also act as a full backup- you can extract files too.

    You can even use images to help you move more easily and quickly to a new PC.

    Imaging can even help you sleep at night knowing you have a second chance.

    Many here recommend Macrium Reflect (free) as a good robust solution and more reliable than some others. It’s
    - more feature rich
    - more flexible
    - more reliable
    than Windows Backup and Restore system images.

    It's well supported with videos, help and a responsive forum.

    There are other such programs, free/commercial, some with simpler interfaces, but Macrium R is one of the most robust and reliable.

    How long does it take?
    SSD+ USB3 - maybe 15 mins for the first system image, less thereafter
    HDD + USB2 - maybe 40-50 mins
    That’s with little personal data, few programs installed.
    - of course, depends how much you have on C:
    (You can and should image all your partitions and disks)

    I have taken your advice and am now using Macrium for my back ups and imaging. This was not a fun thing to go through and thanks to you, I was able to get past it to a working machine and apps again.

    Again my thanks to you my friend as this was not fun and I know you put a lot of effort into helping me which was very much appreciated

    Thanks again
