Hi @abhishek! The link you posted is excellent. I would like to add that Shawn Brink has a .bat file that makes Method #1 in your post (Resetting Updates) much easier.
You can find it here! Thanks for joining in. I like team work!:smile: Windows Update - Reset in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
Sometimes you may have an issue with Windows Update such as not being able to download or install updates, error messages, not being able to search for new updates, etc. These kind of issues can occur when the Windows Update database or components are corrupted, one or more services related to Windows Update are not running, etc.

Resetting the Windows Update components and history can usually solve these types of issues.
