One of the very first things you will want to try in order to resolve the issue is use the Windows Update Troubleshooter. It is a tool built into almost all the versions of Windows OS and can fix many issues related to the updates. This method is easy to use and often fixes the problem without you having to try anything else. This tool first closes the Update services of Windows, clears the update cache, and restarts Update service afresh. Here is how you can use this tool:


Step 1. Click the 'Start' Menu and type 'Troubleshooting'.


Step 2. Select the option in the search result as shown in the image below:



Step 3. It will launch the Control Panel of the Troubleshooter; Here you need to click 'Fix problems with Windows Update' in the section named 'System and Security'.



Step 4. Click Advanced on the next screen. On the next screen, ensure that the checkbox labelled 'Apply repairs automatically' is checked/enabled.


Step 5. Click on 'Run as administrator' (this will allow the Troubleshooter to delete the cache files), and click Next.



Allow the tool to run the course of the process. Once the process is complete, it will let you know whether the problem was identified and fixed. The Troubleshooter can resolve the issues most of the times. Run the Windows Update again to check if the issue has been fixed. If not, move on to the next solution.
