I update religiously but as of 12/31/2017 I am no longer able to download Microsoft Windows Updates.

I am running Windows 10, set for Automatic Updates. As of 12/31/2017 my system stopped Microsoft Updates, though Windows is set for update. When I try to force it manually, I get a notice that the automatic update must be updated. I have done so over and over with no result. I have manually updated a dozen times and get a notice that the service must be restarted. I have powered off and restarted. No update, some message that the Microsoft Updater Troubleshooter must be downloaded. I have downloaded this five times each over a couple days and run it. No change. Same error messages. Can anyone advise? Much thanks.

Fixing update is a trial and error process. There are lots of approaches, many of them rather technical, and only one or two will work for you. I speak from experience.

Microsoft has some tools and approaches. Best to start there. Search Microsoft's website as a start.

I am running 7 but the same thing just happened to me, I did a system restore back to when the last update was installed and then my computer updated with no problem.
