Windows 8.1 won't update

Hi, I have an Inspiron with Windows 8.1. I've tried installing and updating over the last 2 hours but nothing works. There's 129 critical updates at about 1.2 GB in total.

I've tried monitoring the software distribution folder but still it doesn't work after 2-3 hours of "updating". The status is hovering at 0%.

Please advise what I can do.

@Inspiron3593  What do you mean you tried “monitoring” the SoftwareDistribution folder? Try stopping the Windows Update service, deleting the contents of the SoftwareDistribution folder (but not that folder itself!), then starting the Windows Update Service again.
