I decided to upgrade my laptop to 8.1 a few days ago, and when i turned it on the next day i decided to check for the latest updates and a number of updates appeared so i installed them. But at the same time my AV needed to restart, so when it booted back up again i checked in my update history to see if they had installed but it keeps on saying restart needed. I've restarted my laptop a few times and it still says that for the latest updates, what can i do to fix this error?

Could you list which updates these are, and what the precise error message is (if there is one). Are you getting an error mesage within the windows update sectiopn of control panel, or are you seeing a "failed" status in your update history, or have you got both? Also which AV is it that you run?

I am running AVG internet security and it needed to restart at the exact time that the updates needed to restart as well, and i recall i didn't get an error message. It just claimed that a restart was needed and i've done that a few times and it hasn't said configuring updates etc like it usually does just before the log in screen appears. And i shall try to find time later to make a note of which updates i did install, because i'm on my computer at the moment.

I might see if a system restore works, it probably won't though.
