A number of users report that Microsoft Update or Windows Update on Windows 10/8/7 always offers or installs the same update. This usually happens if an update is not installed correctly and your Windows operating system cannot detect the installed or partially installed update. In this scenario, he feels that your system needs the update and therefore reinstalls it over and over again.
If your computer cannot install updates, it may be because the downloaded updates are corrupted or corrupted because your network connection is bad. To check which updates cannot be installed on your computer, go to Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update and select View Installed Update History.
How can I repair my PC that continues to install the same update on Windows 10?
Deleting the software distribution folder
Open the command prompt, then type each command followed by Enter to stop the following services:
