    To fix this issue,click on "Windows Key" and type "cmd" in the search box. When it appears,right click on it and choose "Run as Administrator" option. It will open the command prompt window.Use the below given command:
    • 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
    • pause
    Let the process be completed.Once done,close the command prompt window and try to install updates again.You won't face any issue now.
