Lenovo Thinkpad E560 cannot find or install windows updates

2017-03-22, 17:50 PM

I already made a thread here for my computer but I wanted to make another for a different unrelated problem. Shortly after I got my computer, I was able to install some windows updates. But now I am at the point where it cannot find any updates. If I go to Microsoft and download updates to install manually, they never install. They just get stuck in the same phase each time. I have tried the troubleshooter before but it gets stuck on "Searching for windows updates" or something, and another one I used said the registry was corrupted (?) but I can't replicate that anymore. I'd like to download some updates for security reasons but nothing I have tried seems to work. I run 7Pro. Any fixes or suggestions?

I fixed it. I just let it download windows updates before I decided to install them. Suddenly I got like 70 or more updates
