    In this matter, you should delete all hidden and read-only attribute or files from software distribution folder. Follow the procedure:

    > Go to start and navigate to Start Search box
    > Type services.msc in Start Search box then hit enter
    > Right click on it then run as administrator
    > Go to Services(Local) pane and then automatic update
    > Stop the option by right clicking on it
    > Now, minimize services windows and select contents in Windows distribution folder
    > Delete them all and then maximize the services(local) window
    > Again right click on automatic update then click start

    After completing the process, restart your PC and check for updates again
