Window Update failing error code 800736B3

Hi.
I have a problem with Windows Update. It continues to fail with error code 800736B3. I have tried the update troubleshooter for Windows, I have ran scannow, I also have installed the update readiness tool and hotfix.
Still the updates fail.
I would greatly appreciate any help with this.
I have included the CBS flolder contents.
Thank you in advance for any insight!!!!!

I've uploaded a file - ewgaa.zip - to my OneDrive at Noel's OneDrive
Please download and save it.
Right-click on the downloaded file, and select Extract all…
Extract to the default location - which will create a new folder ewgaa in the same place.
Open this folder - there should be one folder inside it (Manifests, )

Copy the content of the manifests folder (.manifest files) into this folder:

C:\Windows\Temp\CheckSur\Winsxs\Manifests

Now run the CheckSUR tool again (it may take a while)

Post the new CheckSUR.log file, and the CheckSUR.persist.log file.

CheckSUR = Check System Update Readiness

Just double-click on the downloaded file again - it'll go through the same procedure as last time, and hopefully fix the problems
