    Uncheck the option for "Install during automatic maintenance" under option #4 - auto download and schedule the install.

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.
    Like Adam said, "Install during automatic maintenance" option might be the cause. When we set updates to install during automatic maintenance instead of using a specific schedule tied to Windows Update. Automatic maintenance will install updates when the computer is not in use, and avoid installing updates when the computer is running on battery power. If automatic maintenance is unable to install updates within days, Windows Update will install updates right away.
