For the past few weeks I've searched a variety of forums/videos and have tried the following:

1. Running (DISM Cleanup). This method just gets stuck at 60% every time (as shown in the image below)

2. Starting the Windows Update service from *services.msc*. The service wasn't already started, and after following a few videos, I was left with an error I couldn't find anything about:

(I was unable to locate the 'Services Microsoft Management Console' in services.msc)

I also read about Stopping and Starting a few other services (eg. Background Intelligent Transfer Service )but got this error:
