Dear Alfa,

This problem is caused due to the installation files in the "C:\Windows\Installer" folder were deleted. These files are required to install updates. Maybe you should check these threads, I think it’s helpful and enlightening to you:

you can try the method which was posted by Doug, many users said that the method works, perhaps you can solve this issue by it.
