Biggest question, What it is?
Its two drivers,
Microsoft to PDF
XPS Services

And somehow it causes the Windowsupdate to retry,retry and retry. Its simpely cant succeed. These updates are not in the WSUS just when you going to microsoft.com

My solution is to “Disable” the feature before the updates, and “Enable” them after the updates. Because it bad drivers from Microsoft.

The solution:
1. First, Open the Task Sequence that you are deploying.

2. Add a Step into the task sequence. (Make sure you add it After Windows is Installed, Add it just before Windows update is running.)

4. Check XPS Services

5. Then We add a new step in the task sequence. Pretty down in the task sequence. Just before “Apply Local GPO Package”

8. Then apply

9. Update your Deploymentshare and try again. On my machine it solved the issue. Good luck!
