Honestly, if I were you, I would just upgrade to Windows 10 and get a cheap key off a website like this one. Not sure why your Windows 8 is always updating, but I know that Windows 10 doesn't have constant updating. I'd just bite the bullet and spend a few bucks rather than deal with updates every 5 minutes.

I had the same issue with Windows 8.1 failing to update and was able to solve it using this tool from htttp:/www.wureset.com and then applying these two updates manually from Microsoft (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-update/windows-update-will-not-work-in-windows-81/96604cc5-4e8b-4613-beae-1997a24acfc6?auth=1).

Once these were applied (you may have to make a couple of attempts to get them to run), Windows update found 170+ updates. Was upgrading notebook from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1.

there's an update, official from microsoft site, ... i don't remember exactly...need to google... or you do... it's kinda a specific update for windows update service.. after installing it it should start updating pretty normal.. hold on a sec..

here...
it should work
I had the same issue and that fixed it... but...maybe the update links were different...I don't remember... also you should restart and maybe go offline before installing the files... I spent some time trying to install it... in short it should work and be fine
