Windows Update Problems – Error 0x800A138F

I would suggest doing solution 4 first and if that doesn't work.. than 5.

Install those three updates manually, since they seem not to be able to do a background install. Go to the control panel > Windows Update. Get the KB numbers, Google and download them. Then install them manually one by one. Reboot.
