"How can I make the update function work ?"
Hi again willem, try this.

1: Open Command Prompt (Admin). Leave Command Prompt open until finished, if you reboot, you will have to do this again.

2: Type ( or Copy & Paste ) net stop wuauserv & then hit Enter.

3: Type ( or Copy & Paste ) net stop bits & then hit Enter.

4: Browse to the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder and delete all the files and folders inside. Press Ctrl+A to Select All and then Delete.

5: Type ( or Copy & Paste ) net start wuauserv & then hit Enter.

6: Type ( or Copy & Paste ) net start bits & then hit Enter.

Then just wait for updates to automatically do it's thing, don't force the install.

Another thing to try is Windows Update repair.

Go to Control Panel (type it in Search), select Troubleshoot, select All, click on Troubleshoot at the bottom of the list.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If there are a lot of updates, do the update manually and uncheck all but 20 at a time. run it and then do a new search for updates and repeat.

I have repaired Windows Update before using Tweaking.com windows repair tools. Download, Install, Reboot Into Safe Mode, Run Repair Tools including all prescan tools recommended.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

To you all ! Used all the suggestions you provided. In the #2 I used the network connection troubleshooter, which answered there was something definitely wrong with the connection, but it could not correct it.

I had also a tecnician from the provider in as I thought there was someting wrong with the modem. The wifi showed to be out at times. He decided there was nothing wrong and left. A few days later I rang the helpdesk of the provider. She told me to totally reset, not restart the modem and now everythin is OK, while I was typing this the laptop wanted to restart to install the last update provided.

Thank you all
