Windows 10 does not install updates Error 0x80070422

I installed Windows 10 successfully on my Lenovo Desktop, but I am not getting any updates for Windows. When I check under Window update,  it shows the following message;

 " 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: (0x80070422)"

I am getting this message for 5 days now. I would appreciate help in solving this issue.

Thanks
