Windows Update Error: 0x80070570 on Windows 10

I receive an error code (0x80070570) while updating. I had manually tried to disable Windows Update using Group Policy Editor and shutting down process from Task Manager because it had started updating when my multiplayer game was on and I started getting high ping and packet loss. But I reverted all the settings back at the end of my multiplayer gaming session. And now I get this error code.

Any assistance would be great.

OS: Windows 10 Home Single Language
