Dear,

Windows update process need internet connection. If your internet not work well and update process do not sufficient speed then update will not take place. You make sure your internet connection is ok and try manual update process. If you have the backup for windows then run the backup. Reinstall your windows if you can.

Thank You.

The most common cause for this error 0x80070422 is a computer virus that has turned off windows update or a service that the update procedure needs in order for it to run properly. You should perform a full computer scan to ensure your PC is clean and then turn on the service required by Windows Update.

To turn on the services needed by Windows Update:

1) Hit Win+R

2) Type services.msc in the box

3) In the dropdown list look for:

  • Background Intelligent Transfer Service — Manual
  • Windows Event Log — Automatic
  • Windows Update — Automatic
  • Software Licensing — Automatic

That's all. I hope it helps.
