    Hello

    Thank you for your question and reaching out. I can understand you are having issues related to Windows update.

    Disable any Antivirus program or Windows firewall you may have for temporary purpose.

    Create a new folder named as C:\temp\cab

    Download update package from http://catalog.update.microsoft.com to C:\temp

    Run command line below to exact .msu file for getting .cab file.
    expand -F:* C:\temp{.msu file name with extension} C:\temp\cab

    Run DISM command line below to add .cab file.
    Dism /online /add-package /packagepath:c:\temp\cab{.cab file with extension}

    Hi.
    Method 1:
    We recommend that you run Windows Update Troubleshooter:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-update-troubleshooter-19bc41ca-ad72-ae67-af3c-89ce169755dd
    Method 2:
    Open C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore, delete all files in it.
    Open C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download, delete all files in it.
    Method 3:
    May be related to the driver. Check “C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\Panther\SetupAct.log” for more information.

    Best Regards,
    Hania Lian
