Anybody re installing Win 7 is in for a rude awakening because i re installed recently and i know a few others and this "waiting forever" for updates is happening to everybody reinstalling Win 7 .
Microsoft is still giving priority to Win 10 installs and probably will be for quite some time , because of this the average wait people are experiencing who are looking to download and install all Win 7 updates is up to 20+ hours , no joke .
Average wait is 6 to 12 hours and i waited 14 hours , NOEL from Win 7 forums (the WU MVP) told me this specifically and so did some other very knowledgeable people .
Do not think your computer is at fault (in most cases) , Shane from Tweaking.com's "Windows Repair" program did not fix anything for me and neither did downloading all the WU troubleshooters and even installing WU system update readiness tool doesn't help .
After thoroughly going over my WU logs with NOEL he told me no issues as it's just a matter of waiting and waiting till the updates eventually show and they did , took 14 hours to show over two hundred Win 7 updates .
I initially got the same error code as the one you show .
