I recently received this error message. Well, if you receive this error when downloading Windows Update here are a few things you could try.

1] Reboot by PC and used a different connection. For instance, you are using a cabled connection, use WiFi and see.

2] Microsoft allows users to get Updates for other Microsoft products along with Windows Updates. You need to disable Microsoft product updates from the Settings panel and see if that works for you.

To do this, open Windows Settings Panel (press Win+I) > Update & security > Update settings> Advanced options. If the Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows option is checked, you need to uncheck this box.

Now try to update your Windows 10 machine. Did this help? If not, reverse the change you made.

3] Flush the SoftwareDistribution folder and see if that works for you.

4] Run Windows Update Troubleshooter. Windows 10 now allows you to run the troubleshooter from Troubleshoot page in Settings. Open Settings panel > Update & security > Troubleshoot. Here you should see an option called Windows Update. Click on that button and select Run the troubleshooter option.
