Go to your C:\Windows folder and rename the SoftwareDistribution folder to something else.

For example: C:\Windows\SoftwareDistOld.

Now reboot, and try again to do a Windows update.

By renaming the Software Distribution folder, Windows won't be able to find it; and it will have to start over from scratch with Windows updates.

Sometimes this trick works, sometimes it doesn't. It worked for me.
