    Tried all the usual fixes:- Reregistering Updates, SFC /Scannow, DISM, deleting SoftwareDistribution file Contents, Tweaking Computers Windows Repair etc but nothing works.

    Any help gratefully received Thanks in advance.

    Odd solution (?) here:
    Windows update not working error 0x8007050a - SOLVED

    Tread carefully - back up before trying.
    WUA 0x8007050A: The service start failed since one or more services in the same process have an incompatible service SID type setting. : SCCM

    Given those and that you have's repair tool, you might try the fix for Windows services.

    Reset Windows Update in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials
    For reference.

    More: which is your Windows build? Windows key + R, winver

    Have you checked your disk, and run chkdsk c: /scan from an admin command prompt?
    And please confirm the outcome of
    SFC /Scannow, DISM,
    was successful.

    Sorry Win 10 1803. 17134.112
    SFC says no corrupted files DISM the same. Chkdsk is fine. Have tried all the suggestions on the web but none work. Tried the repairs for "updates" and "all"

    - if you've not started using disk imaging routinely yet (e.g. Macrium Reflect (free)), now could be a good time..

    I already use Macrium, but I'd never had this error code before and normally I can fix these type of things easily (30+years of IT). Thanks for your help.
