    Hi..

    For this you need to update your OS..

    Before that Go to Start button..

    Click on Run option..

    Type CMD and Press Enter..

    Now first execute this Command "net stop wuauserv"

    Next execute "cd%systemroot%"

    next execute "ren SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old"

    Next execute "net start wuauserv"

    Restart your system and try to update your OS...

    For automatic updates..

    Go to start button type and open windows updates...

    Here click on change settings button...

    Now select option here "Install updates automatically (Recommanded)"..

    Then click ok..

    Sure it will work

    Thank you
