  • Hi,

     

    This issue can occur if a certain group policy blocks the access to Windows Update.

     

    You may check below:

     

    Click Start, type gpedit.msc and press enter.

     

    Navigate to Computer Configuration-> Administrative Templates -> Windows Component -> Windows Update. Make sure the states of all setting are Not Configured.

     

    Navigate to Computer Configuration-> Administrative Templates-> System-> Internet Communication Management-> Internet Communication settings. Make sure the state of “Turn off access to all Windows Update features” is Not Configured.

     

    If the issue persists, as this is a Windows Update issue, I suggest discussing it in our Windows Update forum:
