Windows Update caught in loop (stuck at getting updates)

It seems that my Windows Update is stuck in a loop of getting the updates. I tried using a diagnostic executable available on Microsoft's website to fix the issue but it apparently did nothing. Does anyone know any other possible solutions?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
How long has it been searching for updates ?
It okay to use Restart.

It's been unfortunately common
I believe it's the update system updating it's self first before offering any update to load by the user.

Updates are taking hours in some cases.
Forum member I assisted stated it took her 7 hours for updates to show.
Be patient.
Set computer to sleep never
start windows update
Patience is a virtue!
