    You can try to open the 'services.msc ' (Win+R) , and close the 'Windows Update'.

    Then type 'net stop WuAUServ' in cmd to close Update Service.

    Find the 'SoftwareDistribution' folder in 'C:\Windows' and rename it as 'SDold'.

    Finally restart the update, uninstall the .net framework and install it again.

    Best Regards,
