    Hi,
    The problem you are encountering has solutions and let me suggest some for you.

    Seems its an application preventing windows to check for updates, Disable your antivirus, and firewall. That should take care of the issue.

    You may have encountered temporary connection-related errors.

    You receive Windows Update error 80072efd while checking for updates, the cause might be a high number of update requests on the Windows Update servers. Close Windows Update, wait 10 to 15 minutes, and then run Windows Update again.
    You can also wait for Windows Update to run at its next scheduled time.To overcome the problem, you need to add the Windows Update website addresses to the blocking program's exceptions or "allow" list or allow Windows Update Service to connect to the Internet through port 80 and port 443.

    Thank you.
