Recently I cloned my system drive to a new SSD and everything worked fine. But none of the new updates are installing in my OS. I think this is because I don't have any recovery drive in my SSD but there's a recovery drive in my old HDD.
I uninstalled all antivirus too.

It’s best to do a fresh install of Windows 10 on a new drive. Cloning between two different drives almost always has problems. Backup your files to the HDD then do a fresh install on the SSD.

Then something went wrong with the clone.

A properly done and completed clone is an exact duplicate of the original, just on a new drive.

Physically disconnect ALL drives except for the current C drive.
What happens?

Did you do a disk clone or a partition clone?

I can turn on and run my pc without all the other drives.
