Error encountered during Windows Update

I have been trying to update my Windows10 for quite some time now, however I keep getting an error prompt.

This is what shows up when I try to update :

Your device is missing important security and quality fixes.

There were some problems installing updates, but we’ll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help: (0x80070424)

I have tried the steps/instructions mentioned in one of the previous threads, but wasn't successful in performing the update.

Kindly assisst.

The best and the easiest way is to use first method in the first article.
