    1)First of do a general windows update troubleshooting in your windows 7 system
    2)If that doesn't solve then follow below steps to resolve your issue;


    2.1)Go to start menu → Search for CMD → Run as admin
    2.2)In command prompt type in the following commands randomly
    net start wuauserv
    net start bits
    net start cryptsvc
    2.3)Finally type exit and then press enter
    3)Re-try for updates in windows update window
    That’s it over!
