Though you may have received the error while using the Upgrade Assistant, this error can typically arise when you are using Windows Update or updating your Windows Store apps too.

2] Use administrator account
Make sure you are logged into your administrator account when you run the tool and disable your antivirus software before you begin.
3] Clear Windows Update cache
If that does not help, clear the contents of the SoftwareDistribution folder and try again.
4] Run Windows Update Troubleshooter
If you still face issues, run the Windows Update Troubleshooter.
5] Use an alternative method to update
There are some generic troubleshooting steps mentioned here on our site as well as here in Microsoft’s KB883821 for Microsoft Update. See if they apply to your scenario and operating system.
All the best.
