Hello @Arush47 

 

Please run the below commands in CMD. Ensure you run CMD as an admin. These commands will delete the Windows Update registry log on your machine and then next time you click on check for updates, WU will check against the entire WU database.

 

Reg delete HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

yes

 

Net stop wuauserv >NUL

 

Cd C:\windows

 

rmdir softwaredistribution /s /q

 

Net start wuauserv >NUL

 

I am sure this will help. Let me know how you get on.

 

Thanks,

Jose

You can try these methods to troubleshoot your Windows 10 update issue:

Method 1: Run SFC Scan.

To run an SFC scan, follow these steps:

Run Command Prompt as Administrator.

Type sfc /scannow and hit Enter.

This will check and run an auto-repair on the issue.

Method 2: Run DISM Tool.

After running the SFC scan and the issue still persist, run the DISM to check the system health and to try restoring the files. To run DISM tool, follow these steps:

Run Command Prompt as Administrator.

Type the following commands:

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /scanhealth

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

NOTE: This might a while to finish scanning. Do not cancel.

Method 3:

After doing Method 1 and Method 2 but the issue still persist, you can manually reset the Windows Update Components and Run Windows Update process again.

Resetting Windows Update Components will fix those corrupted Components and will help the Update installation quickly. To reset Windows Update Components, follow these steps:

Run Command Prompt as Administrator

Stop BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and Windows Update Services. To do this, type the following commands:

Net stop wuauserv

Net stop cryptSvc

Net stop bits

Net stop msiserver

Rename SoftwareDistribution and Catroot2 folder. To do this, type the following commands:

Ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

Restart your computer and try to install Windows Update.

Let us know how it goes.

So I recently reinstalled windows10, and have the issue described. I went through all three solutions, and each time, something new was updated/changed, and I still have the same notification. My version is 1909, and OS build is 18363.1556
