    I'd done part one of that guide before from when I looked up this issue in the past but I just went through all the steps outlined in that guide and restarted my system and I still get the same error.

    Anyone else got any advice? Or should I just wait for the next Windows update in April and see if that fixes it?

    Edit: Maybe I should post this in the General Support forum as well to see if anyone there has any advice?

    Yes and you preferably download ISO and do a repair upgrade instead of using Windows Update.

    Thanks. What is ISO? And what about the second question?

    What build version are you on? 14393.969? There is a new update to build 14393.970 that includes a fix for problems updating apps fro the Windows Store, but it's not being delivered through windows update. You can only get it by downloading the stand-alone update package from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

    I'm not using 1607, I rolled back to the previous version when I got the Anniversary Update. But within my version I am up to date.

    ...Except for some strange reason, I just checked Windows Update and now it's saying:
    "Updates are available.
    Feature update to Windows 10, version 1607."

    Very strange. Very weird coincidence.

    So my PC has automatically updated itself to the latest version [1607] (for reasons I'm not sure of - maybe Microsoft is trying to phase out support for version 1511 ahead of the next update?) and the problem has disappeared. The Lenovo Settings app opens fine, and all the apps that couldn't update were automatically updated to the latest versions during the OS update. And just now I checked for app updates manually (a few updates were detected) and clicked update and they all ran fine.

    So in the end, my suspicions have been confirmed and it saves me having to wait for the Creators Update in April, so I'm happy (despite the fact that I prefer the old version 1511 start menu).

    Your specs say you have Home, so 1607 could have been trying to download to you any time from last August on. Even Pro users can't defer this update any longer, not now it is on the Current Branch for Business. I'm just surprised it's taken so long to get to you. At least it fixed your problems.

    Support for 1511 should end 60 days after the Creators update becomes Current Branch for Business, same as is about to happen for the original 10240 release.

    Hmmm, on checking it seems MS have just extended the grace period by two months...
    No more updates to original Win 10 version 1507/10240 after 26 March?

    It already had downloaded (and installed) a while back, I just reverted back to the previous build/version (whichever is the correct word). It gives you the option to do that for a certain number of days after the update if you go to Settings -> Update & Security -> Windows Update -> Update history -> Recovery options -> Go back to an earlier build. The reason I said I'm not sure why it updated itself again is because (as far as I understand) once you revert to a previous build, it won't update again to the version you downgraded from, it will wait till the next update after that is released and only update then. At least that's how I understood it to work.

    For support purposes I have a machine I keep on 1511 using the 'hide updates' tool. When 1607 recently became CBB its status had changed and I had to hide it again - it was effectively a 'new' release (or more accurately a re-release). That probably explains its reappearance on your machine.
