    Sorry for the late answer.
    I would suggest that you fix the inherent problems first before you worry about updating.
    It is very likely that after you have the following 2 problems resolved, updates will show up for install.

    RE : SFC /Scannow, it found some errors and it said it couldn't repair

    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.
    When finished, it will give you a report.

    Note : if you ended up doing dism command and the result was " Source files could not be found", please post back. There is a fix for that.

    RE : My HDD have bad sectors

    You need to do a disk check.
    Right click at Start button > select Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy & paste this..................
    chkdsk /f/r

    > Enter.

    The black and white screen will come back and tell you that it cannot be done now, but do you want to do that on restart.
    Type Y as in "yes" > enter.
    Exit command prompt.
    Restart computer.
    Disk check will commence at restart.
    When finishes, it will give you a report and then it will take you back to your desktop.
