    Try this :
    Go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download > delete all the files inside folder Download.( Just the files inside, NOT the Download folder).

    Try checking for updates again.

    I would suggest you do a repair install.
    It's time consuming, but it will fix the problem.

    Hello davidhk
    Is problem solved or still persisting ? Yes
    Had a problem with computer booting to black screen last week,so I did a new install that kept all your files. Computer booted perect and all my file were there just like before the black screen problem. I can connect to internet OK and everything works except update? Windows defender will not update either. Not sure if it showed before but my ATT WiFi does not show in network adapters? Shows on desktop icon, but not in control panel network connections. I have discovery turn on,it must be something simple I'm not seeing.
    SFC /SCANNOW shows no problems.
