    You could try the following method.
    Temporarily bypass WSUS server using the following registry edit (requires administrator privileges).

    1. Right-click Start, and click Run
    2. Type regedit.exe and click OK
    3. Go to the following registry key:
    4. In the right-pane, if the value named UseWUServer exists, set its data to 0
    5. Exit the Registry Editor
    6. Restart Windows.

    Hope above information can help you.

    I found that each windows feature installation will automatically reset UseWUServer value to 1.
    So I changed the UseWUServer value to 0 , 3 times and reboot 3 times, to finish adding a language package (Basic Typing, Hand Writing,& Speech).
