    Can not update windows. Error 8024401C always.


    I can not update the windows. It checks for updates for long time and in the end it says 8024401C error always.

    I tried running windows trouble shooter as administrator on windows update and it detects two issues and shows that they are fixed, but the update still don't run. Then, if I run the trouble-shooter again it again detects the same two issues and shows that they are fixed and nothing happens.Any help?

    I do not use any proxy. I use simple mobile GPRS internet to connect to internet.
    I am able to update windows defender.
    Screenshots of the error messages are attached.
