    Registry Error - Windows Update - Error Code 0x80040154


    Hello all,
    I have an issue with my WIndows Updates, I am getting error code 0x80040154 and all the sites I checked did not help.

    Here is my Windows Update log:
    Got 9482F4B4-E343-43B6-B170-9A65BC822C77 redir SecondaryServiceAuth URL: 117cab2d-82b1-4b5a-a08c-4d62dbee7782""
    CoCreateInstance Failed: hr = 0x80040154
    Failed to retrieve SLS response data for service 117cab2d-82b1-4b5a-a08c-4d62dbee7782, error = 0x80040154
    Caller Service Recovery failed to opt in to service 117cab2d-82b1-4b5a-a08c-4d62dbee7782, hr=0X80040154

    Checked in the Registry and here is what is listed
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Services\Pending\117cab2d-82b1-4b5a-a08c-4d62dbee7782

    I have tried everything to get it to the correct location without any luck.

    SFC / DISM / ResetWUEeng / WinFixit / and the list goes on.

    I also deleted it and broke my computer and could not restore it. Had to start all over again and still received the same error message.

    Does anybody have any suggestions. Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum kaltland.
    Link below is for Windows 10 Update Troubleshooter...

    After the troubleshooter finishes, try running Windows Update again and install any available updates.

    Thank you for the welcome
    Ran the troubleshooter and it came back BITS missing or corrupt (which is normal)

    Nothing seems to help.

    Did you try running Windows Update again, as suggested, AFTER running the troubleshooter?

    Without having had your problem it is difficult other than make suggestions, all in good faith, these suggestions given by M$.

    You have obviously tried comprehensively to solve the problem.

    Perhaps someone else on this forum can come up with a solution.

    Were it me in your position now, rather than waste any more time and effort, would download an ISO and reinstall.

    Thanks, I already did the download and reinstall Windows 10. The same error message keeps occurring and I cannot figure out why and what I need to do to get the service out of the pending stage.

    Just by chance, have you tried to Reset Windows Update?
