    install is not needed because no updates are applicable


    If that's not the case and you are sure you need updates, then perhaps
    rename the SoftwareDistribution folder.
    You will lose you update history (not important)

    To rename the SoftwareDistribution folder

    Click Start, Choose Run.
    In the Run box, type services.msc.
    Click OK.
    Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
    Click Stop.
    Stopping the service will take a moment.

    Rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder:
    a. Click Start, click Run, type: %systemroot%
    and then click OK.
    b. Right-click the SoftwareDistribution folder, and then click Rename.
    c. Type SoftwareDistribution.old, and then press ENTER to rename this
    folder.

    Click Start. Choose Run.
    In the Run box, type services.msc.
    Click OK.
    Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
    Click Start.
    Starting the service will take a moment.
