If you want, you can choose to block the updates from hapening -

Use Show/Hide Updates tool to block the update
Download the tool from download Windows 10 Show or Hide Updates Troubleshooter Package from below link
http://download.microsoft.com/download/f/2/2/f2...
Double click on this package > Next > Wait while it detects Windows Updates
Click the Hide Updates menu
Scroll through the list then select then select the update
Check the box next to the update then click Next to confirm changes

But if you want to go ahead and try to update, following are the options -

Option 1: Run Windows Update Troubleshooter

Guided walk-through from Microsoft for repairing Windows Update
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/10164/...

OR

Type Troubleshoot in Windows Start Search box
Click Troubleshoot
Now, you will have Update & Security under which click Troubleshoot
Click Run the Troubleshooter under Windows Update

Option 2: Media Creation Tool or Windows 10 Setup Media

If the troubleshooter does not resolve the problem, then, the next option you can try is using the the Media Creation Tool or Windows 10 Setup install media (Download Link - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo... ) to check for and install updates. Simply download the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool or if you have a Windows 10 ISO, double click it to mount it, then start up. Choose the Download and Install Updates (recommended). If setup successfully completes this step, close the wizard then restart your computer.

Option 3: Go to C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc
Open HOSTS file with Notepad
If HOSTS file contains static IP address that is associated with Windows Update or Microsoft update, comment those entries by adding # at the beginning of the line. You can also delete those and save the changes to the HOSTS file.

Option 4: Check your Antivirus
Update your AV to the latest
Temporarily uninstall / disable AV

Option 5: Run SFC and DISM
https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/for...

Option 6: Reset Software Distribution Folder
Disconnect from internet - Both wifi and wired. That means turning off Wi-Fi and disconnecting from a wired connection. If you don't, Windows 10 will indicate some files are in use and cannot be modified or the command will be non-responsive. Also, you should restart your computer after disconnecting from the Internet. The easiest way to do it is to enable Airplane mode from the Action Center - Windows key + A.
Restart your computer
Type Cmd in Windows Start Search Bx\ox
Right click on Cmd > Run As Administrator
Copy and paste following one by one and Enter

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

When complete, Enter, then reboot the computer > Try downloading again

Hello,
Try resetting Windows updates using an automatic script. See:

Make sure you run the script as an administrator.
