In a simple case, Troubleshooting “update” Windows 10 is to restart the service and renaming the SoftwareDistribution directory located in the root directory of the system.

In General, you first need to assess the nature of the failure, and only then, decide on the most effective to resolve the issue.

As for the possible errors or malfunctions, it is difficult to describe all the situations and events, because it is not provided, and the description of each particular problem and methods of its elimination will take a long time.
