To fix this go to run box and ever regedit and click OK.

Go to this folder:-

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate folder and delete WUServer and WIStatusServer

Again go to run box and type services.exe and click OK

Find the ‘Windows Update‘ service and restart it.
This should fix the problem.

You receive error code “80072ee2” when you install a Windows Update. Usual causes are corrupt system files or the updates are stuck. If you receive this error, here’s a workaround. Click “Start” then in the search box type without quotes “services.msc” then click “services.msc” from the results. In the “Services” console, scroll down and look for the service called “Windows Update” and then right-click it and select “Stop.”

Click “Start,” “Run” or press Windows Key + R then type without quotes “C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution” and then hit Enter. Delete everything inside this folder. After this, go back to the “Services” console, right-click “Windows Update”, and select “Start.” Click “Start,” “Run” or press Windows Key + R then type without quotes “regedit” then hit Enter. In the Registry Editor window, go to this location: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate].

Delete WUServer and WUStatusServer

On the right pane, look for “WUServer” and “WUStatusServer” then delete them. After this, go back to the “Services” console and make sure Windows Update is still running. Try installing the Windows Update again.
