Hi there,

I would definately say it might be worth doing the website option, or alternatively you can back up your data and reinstall the latest version of Windows afresh if you have USB stick - you can make a WIndows 10 install USB using the media creation tool.

Otherwise, try running the following commands. Right click start > choose powershell admin > and enter the following:
  • 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...

  • net start msiserver
Press enter after each one and restart the machine, then try to update once more.
