Windows 7: Cleanmgr.exe don't delete old updates, Manifest hash mismatch in CBS

Windows Server 2008 R2
Cleanmgr.exe don't delete old updates, Manifest hash mismatch in CBS

Hello, I'd like to ask for your help:

on my server with windows 2008 R2 SP1 is a large winsxs directory (over 20G).
I tried running cleanmgr.exe, which reports more than 10G in old updates.
When I enable to delete old updates, the process runs for a few minutes but then ends without an error message.
  • sfc /scannow does not report any error
  • SURT reports "CSI Manifest Failed Catalog Check"
  • In CBS.log, the message "Manifest hash for component [ml: 280 {140}, l: 184 {92}]" amd64_a4cd9f2511c47beb5acd28af1235c6f1_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.22943_none_d1cfb420b31e8a1c "does not match expected value."
Could someone please help me?
