I reset Windows Update in every way imaginable.  I ran every imaginable utility/cleaner (https://github.com/bmrf/tron, etc.), every imaginable troubleshooter (SURT, sfc /scannow, https://github.com/jdickson289/Print-Reset-Tool in full mode, etc.)... What do I do now?  CBS.log shows this:

Curious I just updated two laptops and my tower with no obvious issues, your problem may very well in your system.

Honesty & Integrity Above All!

January updates Hosed zillions of machines.  February Borked a lot as well.  Mine included.

You were trying to install All the Updates for January and February?  Did you try to install all of them at once or one at a time?


Did you shut down all Anti-virus and Anti-malware?


Does your machine boot up to normal mode?

I finally got it fixed.  For anyone else who is having a similarly mysterious issue, check Event Log.  Not for hints as to why it's failing, but for hints that event log is *causing* the issue.  That's right, event log *caused* the issue!


The thing to look for is any log folders in "Applications and Services\Microsoft\Windows" that have slashes in their name.  This indicates that the registration for the provider for that event log is missing in the registry.  In my case this was what I needed:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


(Note that the hex sections show up as text when viewed in regedit.)


In my case I just re-entered the data using regedit while looking at the data on a working system.


No idea how it got deleted in the first place, but re-adding seemed to do the trick.
