Hi Sandy,

Suggest you run the built-in Windows Update troubleshooter and check if it helps. As this troubleshooter will restart and fixes the issues with the all services that are related to Windows Update.

* Press Windows Key then type ‘troubleshoot’ and select the same from the list

* Select “View all” on the left panel and run “Windows Update” troubleshooter from the list

* Click Advanced, ensure to check Apply repairs automatically and also select Run as administrator

* Click Next and finish the troubleshooting.

Once done, check and let us know if the problem still persist.
