    Hello Yuniel, :)

    I had this issue on my laptop, and had to do a repair install (in-place upgrade) using the latest version/build to get to finally update afterwards.

    thanks brink for the reply , i just want wait to repair installation of windows i just format this PC 2 weeks ago

    i looking for clear the windows update history and i found this in microsoft website

    Method 2: Steps to erase Windows Update history
    Note:Erasing the windows update history will just remove the entries of the updates and not really the updates itself.
    a. Go to menu Start> All Programs> Accessories. Right click on the "command prompt" and select "Run as Administrator".
    b. Copy/paste the below command:
    c. net stop wuauserv
    d. And select OK.
    e. Wait until confirmation that the service is stopped.
    f. To delete the file, copy the following command in the command prompt:
    g. del %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\edb.log
    h. You can also delete it manually by going to the location in windows explorer.
    i. you can restart the service with this command:
    j. net start wuauserv

    i do it , but the problem brink when i type the command net stop .......... say my windows update no even started look like is already stop ? , then i copy net start........ and say is started so this confused me why is stop if i never stop it , well i restart my PC and copy command again net stop and say the same windows update no started just saying is already stop , so everytime i restart my PC or from shutdown my windows update stop ?? look like maybe this the reason why my automaetically windows update fail 4 time and work only manual

    I can understand that. If you're worried about losing everything, then you don't have to. You won't lose anything doing a repair install.

    If you like, you could use the .bat file in the tutorial below to make resetting Windows Update easy.
