Windows found corrupt files but was unable to fix(sfc/scannow)

Hey
So every time i run the command i get this:

This started to happen after doing a fresh install,and i'm 100% sure that windows updates are causing this,did a fresh OS install twice,the second time i kept running the command every time after installing a couple of updates, and the sfc/scannow runs fine(thats without doing anything at all other than installing windows updates),when reaching the security updates along with some windows update (think they're around 178mb in total) this error starts to happen,here's the CBS log:

Hi VXER
I had a similar issue sfc /scannow failed after Windows Update
Have you tried this? (as Admin instead of sfc /scannow)

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

Yup,using DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth gives me another error (as admin) but i just came across ehasanov's thread and used the sfcfix.exe that he linked and it fixed it,anyway thanks for your help :)
