Hello Cauyao,

Start with the oldest update and wait and wait, the first one takes ages. This is sort of normal after such a long period of no-action.

I am not an expert at all, but when I was faced with the same problem I did them in batches of first 5, then later ( when that went ok 10 ) It takes time and patience, but for me, it worked.

And ( on the list of the 157 ) make sure to take away ( untick ) the updates for windows 10.
