When you try to update your windows, your antivirus can also cause the error. Disable the antivirus and delete it. Disable the windows defender also in the system. You can try by troubleshooting windows update components. You can try by rebooting your internet connection. Missing windows system files will also create a problem. Run system file checker and change the corrupted files. You can also try by deleting the temporary files and restarting them. Restart the background intelligent transfer service. You need admin privileges.
