    Try installing the first again, the 2nd was a SSU which may be needed to install the main CU

    If not, you could uninstall the last CU, clear the contents of SoftwareDistribution folder and try installing again via WU

    Have you tried a troubleshooter for Windows Update before you went re-installation rout?

    PS Error itself is
    ERROR_SXS_ASSEMBLY_MISSING
    14081 (0x3701)
    The referenced assembly could not be found.

    Ran the troubleshooter several times. Re-install is always an option, but this issue appeared after upgrade to 1903. No clue what so ever to what caused it.

    its simpler to just repair install the OS, even the dism scan and repair can make things worse if the actual SxS manifests are messed up.

    I think the easiest thing to do at this point will be a fresh install of 1903.

    Thanks everyone!
