    Seems like Windows update files are missing.
    Let us check the system Files.To do this do both of these:

    • Perform System File Check (SFC)

    Follow the steps:

    a. Press “Windows Key + Q” to open search Bar.

    b. Type cmd without quotes in the search box.

    c. On the left pane, right click on the “cmd” option and select “Run as Administrator”.

    d. Type sfc /scannow’ without quotes and hit enter.

    • run the System update readiness command. It detects incorrect manifests, cabinets or registry data, it may replace the incorrect data with corrected version available. Follow the steps.

    1. Press Windows key + X.
    2. Click command prompt (Run as administrator).
    3. In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type the following commands. Press Enter key after each command:

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
    To close the Administrator: Command prompt window, type Exit, and then press Enter.
    Reply back with the results would be happy to help.

    Thank you I now have the ability to get updates!

    I am posting a second issue that I will mention here:

    Since upgrading when I go to file explorer I have duplicates of everything, e.g., several desk tops, several My PCs, everal libraries. It's hard to judge how many because inside each on are duplicate icons. So every folder I have appears multiple times. I counted at least 4 for each of my HD's (internal and external) all my USB drives (which shouldn't even show up unless they are in use), etc.

    Again, I'm starting a new post, but no good deed goes unpunished so I'm giving you first shot.

    Thanks again.
