  1. Windows "couldn't install updates"


    My computer keeps changing the options of restart and shutdown to "update and shut down" and "update and restart" respectively. Then, it will "install" these updates and then, after a lengthy process, say it couldn't install updates. Then, a few days later it will try again, fail again, and then repeat. This has been going on for months, and I don't know what to do. I haven't updated my computer in a very long time due to this issue.

    Update KB4550961 couldn´t be installed

    Hi! I´ve tried hard to install KB 4550961 unsuccessfully. Even run this or that in order to correct whatever the problem might be.

    However, after restart it appears “Updates couldn’t be installed” on the screen. Running Scannow and Restorehealth as Administrator didn´t work either.

    I´ve also gone step by step thru “Fix Windows Update errors” steps 1 to 5. I´m reluctant to follow Step 6 Reset or Reinstall Windows – Refresh is not included - because I´m afraid I might loss some stuff important, though I created
    a restoration point and a USB recovery drive, just in case.
