I use Windows 8.1 64 bit.  I regularly get notices that say that I need to go to Updates to manually update Windows.  When  I go to "Update and Recovery" and click "Install" I get an error saying that updates failed to install.  When I run the Windows Update Troubleshooter it says that it fixed the update problem, and after running Update Troubleshooter and clicking "Install" in "Update and Recovery" it will begin installing but does not complete the installation.  I use WiFi that is not entirely reliable, but I am able to download programs, videos, etc. consistently.


I have updates set to install automatically, so why do I get notices saying that I need to go to "Update and Recovery" to manually install updates?  When shutting down my computer I regularly get the "Update and Restart" and "Update and Shutdown" options.  When I choose one of these the computer seems to update successfully.  I looked at my recent update history and some have installed successfully and others have not.  Thanks for any replies.
