Hello! I am extremely behind on updates, honestly never bothered with them, until one day I did. It said windows failed to configure and it had to revert the changes. Ever since then, I can't use Windows Update. Attempting to check for updates gives an error saying the Windows Update service isn't running even though it is, so I went into the services and turned it off and back on, still says it isn't running. After a reboot and several BSOD's (Ongoing problem, although Windows Update is the focus here.) it still doesn't acknowledge the existence of it's own service.
The person helping me in the original thread told me to include "CBS log" in the title of this thread, so I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say he wants me to attach it too, probably. (Oh wait... It's too big to attach... Here's a dropbox download instead, then.)
If you haven't read the original thread, here's all the steps I've taken so far (Or at least, the one's that are relevant to Windows Update)
Downloaded and ran the Windows Update troubleshooter (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/gp/windows-update-issues/en-us)
It found and fixed 4 things. Windows Update still didn't acknowledge it's own service, rebooting or restarting the service didn't help.
Ran the Windows Update troubleshooter a couple more times and got mixed results. The overall outcome was the same every time, but the basic report kept showing different results, the second time it showed 5 things found and 3 fixed, 3rd time it said 5 found 2 fixed, and all 3 times if I clicked detailed report, it would give me the detailed report from the first time I ran it.
I've also ran SFCFix, the 5-25 minute scan took about 5 seconds. Here's the log it gave me
