A solution to this is resetting the windows update components. This involves modification of the registry. This may lead to problems if this is done incorrectly. You need to follow the steps below. Open the windows command prompt. Stop BITS service Windows Update service. This is done by: Type ‘net stop bits’ then press enter.
 
Then type net stop wuauserv and press enter.
 
  • Then type Del "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%ApplicationDataMicrosoftNetworkDownloaderqmgr*.dat" to delete qmrg.dat files. Then type cd /d %windir%system32 and press enter. After this you need to re-register your BITS and Windows Update files.
 
Type the following and press enter after each:
 
  • regsvr32.exe atl.dll
  • regsvr32.exe urlmon.dll
  • regsvr32.exe mshtml.dll
  • regsvr32.exe shdocvw.dll
  • regsvr32.exe browseui.dll
  • regsvr32.exe jscript.dll
  • regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll
  • regsvr32.exe scrrun.dll
  • regsvr32.exe msxml.dll
  • regsvr32.exe msxml3.dll
  • regsvr32.exe msxml6.dll
  • regsvr32.exe actxprxy.dll
  • regsvr32.exe softpub.dll
  • regsvr32.exe wintrust.dll
  • regsvr32.exe dssenh.dll
  • regsvr32.exe rsaenh.dll
  • regsvr32.exe gpkcsp.dll
  • regsvr32.exe sccbase.dll

  • regsvr32.exe wuaueng1.dll
  • regsvr32.exe wucltui.dll
  • regsvr32.exe wups.dll
  • regsvr32.exe wups2.dll
  • regsvr32.exe wuweb.dll

  • regsvr32.exe qmgrprxy.dll
  • regsvr32.exe wucltux.dll

There are many ways to solve this problem of yours. Windows has launched new update for this fix. Download it from here:
 
 
You could also try to restore to previous restore point. Try System restart after doing the update as i told. If it didn't helped do this:
 
  • Troubleshooting problems from the stock troubleshooter of windows in most cases helps. Windows has made a great database of various troubleshooting options within Windows operating system.
  • Run Windows Update Troubleshoot Tool by going to this Start –> Control Panel –> Troubleshooting –> Fix problems with Windows Update.
 
If this issue still persists, disable firewall and other security software.
 
That solves your case.

Hi there!
 
Please try this solution, try the Microsoft Fix It for Windows Update components. Click this link ->
 
 
It will automatically update or resolve windows update problems. Under “Fix it for me” section, you need to click the button named “Microsoft Fix it”.
 
Run this tool, and you would probably first run it not in aggressive mode, but if it is still on error you should then try the aggressive mode. If this did not help, you can try to run the windows update troubleshooter link right here, if this does not solve your issue, then I will try to search for other solutions.
 
Here is the link ->
 
 
I hope this helped you.

I just downloaded an update from the link given by Lesten Pasio and Szakacs Regis. But after rebooting, the problem is still there.

So I tried the troubleshoot option and downloaded an update again. And sure enough, after rebooting, the problem is now gone. The update is now working just fine. Thank you all! Especially to TechyV!
