Have you ever had this problem with Windows 10 updates? Let’s talk about how we can fix that. It’s very common to have Windows 10 updates get stuck and even when you hit retry it just comes back with the same error message. So how do you clear that out.
Go to your Start menu, type in CMD, and then right-click on the command prompt and run it as administrator. This opens up an administrator command prompt. Type the following commands in here. “net stop wuauserv” type without quotes and hit enter. This is going to stop the Windows Update service. After that’s completely open up your File Explorer and go to your Windows folder and find the folder SoftwareDistribution. Now if you take a look inside this folder you’ll see all kinds of information but we don’t need any of that. That is the stuck windows updates. So I’m going to go back and I’m going to right-click and delete this folder. Now that it’s cleared out you can close the window, come back to your command prompt, and type “net start wuauserv”. Youhave to stop the Windows Update Service in order to delete that folder. Now that we’ve started again we can go into our Windows Update and click the Check for updates again. This will re-download those windows updates and hope successfully install without getting any error. Now there’s no guarantee that it won’t come back and get stuck again but in most instances, this clears the queue and allows you to update properly.
