Windows 10
#3
Firstly, go to “C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download” and select and delete all the files which are present over there. Don’t worry, these files are needed to be  deleted so that Windows Update is given a quick refresh and you can check for the update. Also, note that we have used “C:” drive here, you’ll need to replace it with different drive letter if you have installed windows somewhere else.

Next, open Control Panel and run “Windows Update” by clicking on it. Next, you need to type “cmd” in search bar and right click on it and select “Run as Administrator”. This will open up the Windows Command Prompt. Now, in Windows Command Prompt Windows so opened, type “wuauclt.exe /updatenow” (without inverted commas) BUT don’t execute this command yet. Simply type the Command and read on.

After writing the command, switch to Windows Update and click on “Check for Updates” option present on the left-hand side of the Window. After clicking, you will see a message saying “Checking for updates …..”. Now, while it is happening in the background, switch back to command prompt and execute the command which you have already written in the previous step by hitting Enter Key.

This is what I used to force the update on my daughter's netbook - worked fine :)
