I hope you're all doing well. I've been encountering an issue with Windows updates, and I'm hoping to get some guidance.Recently, when I tried to install the latest Windows updates on my PC, I received an error message (code 0x80073712). I've tried the basic troubleshooting steps like restarting my PC and running the Windows Update Troubleshooter, but the issue persists.Has anyone else here experienced this error before? If so, how did you go about resolving it? I'm eager to get my system up to date, and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!
