Windows Failed update Error code 80071A2D

I recently did a factory restore to get rid of some malware and now for some reason updates aren't going through properly.
Everytime i shut down my computer i have 85 updates and they all fail except two.
But the error code is Code 80071A2D

Almost all the updates are Security updates.
