Run Windows Update Troubleshooter

Windows includes a built-in troubleshooter that can help you fix a stuck update. 

Step 1: Go for “Control Panel” -->Troubleshooting-->System and Security-->Fix problems with Windows Update”. 


Step 2:  Click “Advanced” in the Windows Update troubleshooting window. 


Step 3: In the “Advanced” settings, check the “Apply repairs automatically”, and then click "Next".

Delete Cache

If you’re still having trouble after running the troubleshooter, try to delete the cache so that your Windows update can work properly. 

Input "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" and click “OK” to launch to the folder. Delete all files present in this folder but don’t delete the folder itself.
