Heya,
just found, this Metadata staging failed - Event ID 131 errors in event log, when start up my pc. From Google search found, that there is http link, where PC get this data in registry:
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Device Metadata
-DeviceMetadataServiceURL
I check on Win11 beta and Canary build: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=252669&clcid=0x409, which redirect to http://dmd.metaservices.microsoft.com/metadata.svc. This web address give me 502 Bad Gateway error on three different ISPs, so may be problem is at all on Microsoft side.
Here is link for problem in MS Feedback Hub: The Windows Insider Program

Please share more info, that problem exist for you too, here. Thanks.

Hi, the same on my Windows 10 machine, haven't updated my Windows 11 machine yet. As already mention, I have that same link in registry and get same error. I would get this error many times on a boot or when plugging in external USB drive. I could stop getting the error by disconnecting from internet, then no errors when booting or plugging in external drives. Finely, I should add going to control Panel, search for Device Installation, select change device installation setting to NO- does fix the error. Then I can be connected to internet and reboot or add my USB external drive and no errors. Not sure this is a wise fix, but does work. I think this pretty much proves that Microsoft has a problem with this link in the registry DeviceMetadataServiceURL Haven't had any 200 errors, but haven't done the Windows 11 machine yet. I posted this on the 11 forum just to show this seems to be more than just Windows 11 issue and how I fixed it.

Correction, did get the 200 errors in warning section. But they also stopped after my little fix.

Did this on my Laptop which I update today, did same fix. You would think Microsoft would fix that URL so it didn't error put out an update. Fixing the URL to actually point to something seems the easiest?

You are not alone. Started seeing the same issue on Windows 10 22H2 a few days ago. Still going on.

You are not alone. Started seeing the same issue on Windows 10 22H2 a few days ago. Still going on.

it was sort of an issue on Win10 22H2 but one user claimed the recent KB5033372 update for Win10 might have fixed it (for some people but not for everyone else though)

for Win11 22H2/23H2 users, try installing the newly released KB5033375 update released Tue. 12/12
post there the KB5033375 update thread whether the event id 131 errors still occur or not with that update

My errors were occurring due to my HP printer driver. I uninstalled and re-installed it and the error appears to have gone away.

I searched the GUID in Regedit and determined the errors were printer related. Not sure why they showed up suddenly.

Im having similar issues. If I do the "change device installation setting to NO" trick, how can we know if Microsoft sorted this issue out? Is there a place where we can see updates or receive notifications about this?
