    For the time being your updates are up to date.

    In Task Manager, Processes tab, what is the % of CPU being used while the system is at idle then run Windows Update again and tell me what the % is now.

    Windows key + W and type Troubleshooting then click Troubleshooting
    Click System and Security, Windows Update then Advanced then next on the next screen. Does it fix anything. You will have to reboot for any changes to take effect.

    @Nuccii, thank you very much for your help.

    I checked the cpu usage during Windows Update and it's onlye 3%, all ok.

    I tried the Troubleshooting and every time I opened it with admin rights it says that some components from Windows Update needs to be repaired and it's fixed. Every time I open the Troubleshooting.

    I close the troubleshooting and try the Windows Update again, still searching for updates and stuck on the green bar

    Nothing left to do... only format? only re-install?

    Yes, unfortunately we cannot uninstall Windows Update and reinstall it as we were able to in prior versions of Windows.

    Back up your data and perform a Refresh: https://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...ndows-8-a.html

    Failing that, reinstall Windows. Keep a record of your Windows Key just in case before doing anything.

    Install the following Win8.1 update - KB3172614
    Microsoft Update Catalog

    this update rollup contains Windows Update Client v7.9.9600.18340 from KB3163023 that should resolve the long "checking for updates" problem
