Windows Update absolutely will not run

Copper Contributor

I cannot get Windows Update to run.  I have read lots of articles and tried what I could find to fix it.  I am running Win 1909 Build 18363.556 and I am eternally stuck in this version as a result.  If anyone can help me I would be very grateful.  Been struggling with this for three weeks.

I recommend you to upgrade to latest version i.e. Version 22H2 via ISO file. You can perform in-place upgrade for this.

@KapilArya I appreciate your response.  I tried that. Its the subject of another post. Im stuck in this outdated version because Win Update refuses to run. I have read a number of articles on this too.  I decided to do an ISO reinstall and that stops during SAFE mode phase and will not complete.  Also put in a post on that but have not heard back from anyone. Desperate!

Try to download WINDOWS 10 ISO from Microsoft and make a clean install.
