    error:some problems installing updates try again later

    I get this message repeatedly when I click on check for updates. I've called microsoft help numerous times without resolution to the problem.

    On one of the calls a microsoft agent put an batch file written by Shawn Brink on my desktop to reset windows update. However, when I run the batch file I get the message that either bits or wuauserv failed to stop.

    I have windows 10 version 1909.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Hi, when you ran that file, were you signed in as an administrator?
    Reset Windows Update in Windows 10

    Did you rt click it and run as admin?

    (See the tutorial instructions)

    What does the Windows Update troubleshooter report?

    You can try this free cautious tool:

    Use only necessary repairs e.g. 3, 16: back up beforehand (you do use disk imaging routinely, I hope- e.g. Macrium reflect -free/paid + external storage for image files).
