1] Open Windows Explorer and browse to C:Windows Software Distribution. Now delete the entire contents of the SoftwareDistribution folder. The folder SoftwareDistribution folder in the Windows operating system is a folder in the Windows directory that hides files that may be needed to install Windows Update on your computer.

2] Next, run Windows Update Troubleshooter. Troubleshooting runs to see if there are any problems that prevent you from downloading and installing Windows updates on your computer.

You can also use Microsoft Online Troubleshooting to troubleshoot Windows update errors. It corrects error codes such as 0x80073712, 0x800705B4, 0x80004005, 0x8024402F, 0x80070002, 0x80070643, 0x80070003, 0x8024200B, 0x8024200B, 0x80070422, 0x80070020, etc.

3] After that, run Windows Update in Clean Boot State. To do this, you must boot your Windows PC in the proper boot state. This article shows you how to run Clean Boot.

When you start the computer in a clean boot process, the computer starts with a preselected minimum set of drivers and boot programs. You can see that only a minimal group of system programs required is loaded and therefore nothing interferes with the Windows update process.

I did this and was able to install Windows updates on my Windows 10 PC. I hope it helps you too.
