If automatic updates is disabled this can happen. Check and if disabled enable it.
Hi, I have a small computer that I use for attaching to my TV to watch via HDMI (via VPN) because the local TV is not watchable. It is running Windows 10 Home (32 bit), 1607, build 14393.693. Processor: Intel Atom CPU 23735F @ 1.33Ghz. RAM 2GB. OS, x64 based processor.
It has recently stopped updating Windows Updates although Windows Updates are shown “available”. If the “Update History” is selected it just grays out. Windows Defender needs Updating. When I select Update, it gets about one-third through, then stops. Maybe this is one or two errors -- when I shut down, it shows “Task Host Window” and “Task Host Window (\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\Automatic App Update)” with the choice to Shutdown anyway/Cancel. Any help please. Thank you.
