    Worked for me:
    Step 1: Stop Windows Update Service + Step 4: Install the KB4054517 Manually.

    I have had 'almost' the same issue for the same error, but for a different reason. I have a different version of Win 10, being version 1439, (which I have had since I updated for free during the free ugrade period from an authentic Win 7 64-bit OS and by the way *could not revert back to Win 7 for a corrupt database error*). So, as it is, it does not let me update my Windows 10.

    **the actual error log** which reports once the update almost goes through during either, (1) the Win 10 Update Assistance process, or using, (2) the Media Creation Tool, is as follows:

    Error 0x800f081f


    The source files could not be found; their location must be specified using the /source option to restore the feature. – GetCbsErrorMsg

    CbsSessionOptionRepairStoreCorruption – CDISMPackageManager::RestoreHealth(hr:0x800f081f)

    I have tried the many different MS-DOS recommendations (becoming an MS DOS master in 2x days, ..kidding!, but have tried many commands) to rectify my OS but I am still left with only lengthy futile updating attempts. I have been informed by Microsoft that I have until April 10th, 2018 to update my version via start screen prompts and I do not know what I should do, or if I should take it so seriously. All opinions are appreciated, thank you very much for this chance of assistance by this community, Jesse.

      Jesse: Since you have a very old version of Windows 10, I suggest to perform a clean installation of Windows using the latest Windows 10 version.

      Ok, I think that this is the ticket, thank you, I will save all that is ' precious to me' and wipe it all, and reinstall this maddening beastie. =]

    trying out option 3 since 1 is already a thing and 2 requires a download.

    So far it looks like it's working :D

    Method 3 worked for me. Thanks.
    I can't stop Windows update servies by using above method. I stop the services in the properties option.
