Updates fail from SCCM with error 0x87D00668(-2016410008)

So you deployed updates and you get an error message saying 0x87D00668(-2016410008), with an error description: Software update still detected as actionable after apply. This is what you do:
  1. RDP to the client with the error
  2. Stop Windows Update service.
  3. Rename C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution
  4. Rename C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\registry.pol
  5. Restart Windows Update service.
You can run a policy refresh after this and the software updates will drop out of the Software Center.
