  • Hi ,

    Are you facing a Windows update issue?
    If so, we could run the built-in troubleshoot tool to have a diagnostic.
    Path : Control Panel \All control Panel Items\Troubleshooting\All Categories Windows Update
    Then, clear the update cache and repeat the windows update process. Rename the SoftwareDistribution folder to clear the update cache(path: c:\windows\ SoftwareDistribution), Windows will create a new SoftwareDistribution folder during Update process.
    If the issue persists, reset Windows Update components should be last step you try.
    How do I reset Windows Update components?

    Best regards
