    Hello there,

    Can you share the exact error message or Event ID you are getting?

    Follow the steps below to force Windows update with the command line:

    Type cmd in the search box, choose Run as administrator and click Yes to continue.

    Type wuauclt.exe /updatenow and hit Enter.

    This command will force Windows Update to check for updates and start downloading.

    You can also Reset windows update components and see if that helps:

    Right-click on the start button and select Powershell (admin) or Command Prompt (admin)

    Copy each commands and hit enter after you paste each of them

    net stop wuauserv

    net stop cryptSvc

    net stop bits

    net stop msiserver

    Ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

    Ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old

    net start wuauserv

    net start cryptSvc

    net start bits

    net start msiserver

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
