"Configuration of the Windows updates failed. Restoration of the changes. Do not turn off your computer"error when you try to install Windows updates

Original title: problems with updates

I tried to install windows updates since the store won't let me update to 8.1 otherwise, but I've been miserably lacking 4 days in a row now. Commissioning Windows Update in Control Panel or the charm of parameters found 133 available updates and informs me that they will install automatically. If I then try to install progress remains at "downloading 0 KB", after a while updates are shown as installation. When the installation is completed I'm prompted to restart my pc. After the reboot if I'm greeted by the "Failure configuring Windows updates" screen for about an hour, then I'm able to reconnect to the desktop computer. I've been searching the forums for similar problems looking for an answer and trying different solutions, such as:

Stop the update service then renaming or deleting the folder C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution. No positive results on this one.

Using SFC and DISM, first came up with my system is clean, the second did find and fix corrupt elements of store, but the problem persists.

Download the tool for troubleshooting Windows Update from Microsoft page, who reported finding and repairing problens with service, but again without success.

Reduce the installed updates at a time, in the instance that Windows can't handle most of the many updates at the same time. I tried this and it seemed to go well, but a strange point of interest that is so annoying is that several edits I checked are installing somehow, even if it is the only example that shows the number of updates being installed before restarting. Yet I always comes to the same conclusion. Failure of Windows updates the screen. What should I do?

    Although Windows Update said I was now updated, I was skeptical as when this whole thing started is started when I got the "windows installs updates" and then "failed to configure updates. Returning... etc"then I restarted my computer. At the start, there was no message on try to configure the updates, then, how do I know they are configured and working as it should?

    You may need to stay on this screen for not more than one hour, if there are serious problems with Windows Update.

    If you can always access your PC after waiting, turn off your PC. Then turn it on, immediately pressing F8 constantly. Once you get a black screen with options, select Safe Mode with the arrow keys and press enter on your keyboard.

    Once Windows finishes loading of files, you can start in safe mode, where you should be able to log on normally. You will notice that the screen resolution has changed, and when you log in, you will see a black desktop computer. This lets you know that you are using safe mode. Once you log on, restart normally.

    After restart my Asus X55oE due to necessary updates, I got «default configure features windows.» Restoration of the changes. Do not turn off your computer.

I also read that you can actually go to the control panel > windows update > help to erase mistakes. Also, someone said that you can customize the number of updates at a time can be both. I certainly do not happen again. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
