If Microsoft Update or Windows Update offers or installs the same update again and again in Windows 10/8/7, this post suggests things you may want to try to fix.
This usually occurs when an update has not been properly installed and your Windows operating system cannot detect the update installed or partially installed. In this scenario, it considers that your system needs the update and therefore installs it again and again.
Windows 10 will continue to install the same update
1] First, you should try writing the update number that will be installed again and again. It will be something like KB1234567.
Right-click Start to open the WinX menu. Select Control Panel, then open the Programs and Features applet. Click Installed Updates to view the Windows update history.
Now search for the update number, right click on it and select Uninstall. It can display a status Failed or not.
Restart your computer and reinstall Windows Update.
See if it helps.
2] You can also start Windows Update Troubleshooting and see if it helps.
3] If none of this helps, deleting the contents of the SoftwareDistribution folder is probably useful. The Windows Operating System Software Distribution folder is a folder in the Windows directory that caches the files needed to install Windows Update on your computer.
This article shows you how to delete the contents of the’Software Distribution’ folder.
Flushing this folder is known to solve some problems, such as Windows Update can not be installed, Windows Update does not work, errors when configuring Windows updates, Windows Update is blocked when downloading updates, we could not complete the updates and so on. See this article if the driver update is still provided by Windows Update.
This data store also contains your Windows update history files. If you delete it, you will lose your update history. The next time you launch Windows Update, it will take longer to detect it.
Restart your computer and run Windows Update and install the available updates.
