    Step 2- Run this file.
    Step 3- You can then check on 'aggressive mode'.
    Step 4- Click on 'next' again.

    Check Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) and the Windows Update service should be running.
    To do so follow the steps:
    1. Hit Windows + X key > click on Command Prompt (Admin)
    2. Next, in the Command Prompt,> type in net start BITS > press Enter.
    3. Then after completing the process type another line in CMD: "net start wuauserv" > hit Enter again.
    As the process is completed try updating the Windows again and check if the error is fixed or not.
