    Hi and welcome!
    Try to Update Defender manually!

    Try this links:

    You can try to update directly from the Defender window or see if in Services Defender is properly set. See screenshot. If the problem persist, then click help in Defender because there is a problem similar to the one you have in the link.

    Also. make sure that you don't have an apps that run in the background that may interfere with Defender. Defender doesn't need help and should run alone.
