Windows 10 update issue

I have a problem with windows update it keeps giving the error message.....

We couldn’t connect to the update service. We’ll try again later, or you can check now. If it still doesn’t work, make sure that you’re connected to the Internet.

Anyone know of a fix?

Thanks.

Re: Windows 10 update issue

Are you trying to do the update via wifi? There are a good few people having problems with their wifi disconnecting, and are having to reboot the modem/router.

My wifi has been on and off since weekend, but the Ethernet is fine.

Re: Windows 10 update issue

Turn all your security off and try again . . Windows is that paranoid about viruses, trojans and back door keyloggers that it's probably too scared to update itself

. . . or you can just turn updates off and enjoy a stress free computer experience

Re: Windows 10 update issue

What time are you trying the update? If it’s late afternoon/evening, always bust as the US is on line. Best done early morning

A Google came up with a way to reset the update components, also make sure you have the most current version of Windows 10, you can use the update assistant to get it.
