    I'm seeing a problem with running updates on a few Windows 11 computers in our environment. It appears to be after KB5039895 and/or KB5040442 were applied.

    Using the PSWindowsUpdate commands to check/install available updates, I am faced with the following error.

    From the CBS log:

    The KB noted in the CBS.log doesn't correlate with the the update that is failing, but that's what is produced when trying to run the update.
