"Won't update"? Are you saying it won't run windows update?  If so, download and install this:

Let it run.  1st update takes a long time.

Re: w520 wont update on win7 following fresh instal

Getting WU working has been a moving target lately.  The below may work for you but YMM definitely V.  This got me going recently.

 

My neighbor is a Windows mechanic and deals with this on a far-too-regular basis.  He carries these on a flash drive at all times.

 

In an elevated command window: net stop wuauserv

rename C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution to ....OLD
net start wuauserv
install these, rebooting in between:
.NET update: NDP461-KB3102436-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU
KB3138612
KB3145739
KB3153199
KB3161664
KB3020369
KB3161608  KB3172605
