Try these 3 ways but fail

1) C:\Windows\system32>DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

2)C:\Windows\system32>sfc /scannow

3)D:\sources>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:D:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /limitaccess

Please advise Thanks in advance

    Something may be problematic with the source being used. Might try
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    this will source the repair files from microsoft via internet.

    Some things to try.

    but time may be better spent standing up a new one, patch fully, migrate roles over and move on.

    @Bilal Khan
    Hi,
    This error code 0x800f081f can occur when an alternative installation source is specified and one of the following conditions is true:
    The location that is specified by the path does not contain the files that are required to install the feature.
    The user who tries to install the feature does not have at least READ access to the location and to the files.
    The set of installation files is corrupted, incomplete, or invalid for the version of Windows that you are running.

    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 http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=243077.

    To fix the error, you will need Windows Installer .ISO:
    Once you have mounted your Windows Installer .ISO, open up an elevated Command Prompt and depending upon whether you have install.esd or install.wim in the \Sources folder of your Windows setup disk, run one of the following commands:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:E:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /limitaccess

    Or another command is:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:esd:E:\Sources\Install.esd:1 /limitaccess

    Hope above information can help you.
