    Maybe wait til Windows performs a couple rounds of maintenance, then see what happens.

    Stop Windows Update services and try deleting SoftwareDistribution folder from the Windows folder.
    You will get some errors so just ignore them.
    Restart your computer and check for updates.

    Good Luck
