    Make sure that your antivirus firewall is allowed to connect windows for update or not . and disable your antivirus firewall then try to update.

    Give this a try. Open command prompt as administrator ad type the following commands :

    netsh winhttp reset proxy (enter)

    net stop wuauserv (enter)

    net start wuauserv (enter)

    exit (enter)

    Now try installing the updates again, you should be good to go.
