I am checking for updates in Windows 8.1, notifying important updates were available. When i try to install the important updates, i am getting the error code “80240016” – Windows Update is currently installing other updates. Please try again in a few minutes.
But, no other updates were installing at that time, then why displaying such an error.
Solution: If you have enabled Windows defender anti virus full scan, then turn off and try installing the updates. It worked for me.
