Hello @sudipta20


Please run Windows Update troubleshooter from Settings app > Update & security > Troubleshoot > Additional troubleshooters. See if it works.


If that doesn't work, try this:


Open administrative Command Prompt and type following commands one-by-one followed by Enter key.


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


Close Command Prompt and see if Windows Update works then.


Let us know if this helps!

 I had problems for several months and nothing worked.

I then from the Microsoft website manually downloaded the most recent upgrade for Windows 10 system.

Rebooted and hey presto it started working normally. @Pat260 

That's great, updating to the latest version of OS is always useful :)
