    Dear Friend!!
    this is an update error usually occurs due to missing file which handles the windows update names as CBS Manifest.
    You need to repair the computer by following these steps-

    Close all programs, and then restart your computer.

    Insert the Windows DVD into your computer's disk drive. Wait for Setup to start. If Setup doesn't start automatically, follow these steps:
    • Click Start, and then type Drive:\setup.exe in the search box. Replace Drive with the letter of your computer's DVD drive (for example, D:\setup.exe).
    • In the Programs list, click Setup.exe.

    Click Install Now.

    Click Go online to obtain the latest updates for installation (recommended).

    If you are asked for it, type the Windows Product key.

    In the Which kind of installation do you want? window, click Upgrade.

    When the installation is complete, restart your computer, and then run Windows Update.
    And the error is gone!!
