DISM ERROR 0x800f0801 on windows 10 - how to solve and what does it mean?

I'm trying to rescue a windows 10 installation using DISM but I keep getting this error message:

Error: 0x800f0801

DISM failed. No operation was performed.
For more information, review the log file.
An error occurred closing a servicing component in the image.
Wait a few minutes and try running the command again.

couldn't find this error code searching previous help topics
any ideas on how to solve this? why would closing a servicing component cause this error?

thank you

Hi,


These are the few things you need to do to fix Windows Update Error 0x800f0801 in Windows 11 or Windows 10. It usually occurs with a Feature Update.

1.Use Windows Update Assistant

  1. Run Windows Update Troubleshooter
    To do this, you can follow the given steps.

Launch Settings by Win + I.
Click Update & Security > Troubleshoot > Additional troubleshooter.
Select Windows Update and click Run the troubleshooter.
Wait for the process to complete and check if it fixes the issue.

  1. Repair .NET Framework

  2. Clear SoftwareDistribution folder contents
    To do this, open Command Prompt as an administrator and run the following commands to rename the folder:

net stop wuauerv

net stop bits

net stop cryptsvc

c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution.OLD

net start cryptsvc

net start bits

net start wuauserv
Finally, restart your computer and check if it fixes the Windows Update error for you.

  1. Run DISM to repair Windows Update components.
    To do this, launch Command Prompt as an administrator from the Start Menu and run the following commands.

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
Check if it fixes the issue.

if your Windows Update client is already broken, you will be prompted to use a running Windows installation as the repair source or
use a Windows side-by-side folder from a network share, as the source of the files.

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:C:\RepairSource\Windows /LimitAcces

You need to wait for both of these commands to complete their task.
Once the process is complete, DISM will create a log file in %windir%/Logs/CBS/CBS.log and capture any issues that the tool finds or fixes.

Finally, check if the Windows Update error is fixed.
