Windows 10 ver. 1607 on a 5 year old e-machine will not update.

This system had the same error under Win 7 and Win 10 upgrade and now version 1607.

The PC seems to run well and is clear of malware, plays video.  Have researched several different fixes including  Shut down the 3 services and restarted.  clearing the download folder in Software Distribution,    Ran several Microsoft FixIt's.  And tried the upgrade to 1607 and none of those have made a difference.

When I run "check for updates" it responds with the error message " there has been a problem with installing updates, we'll try again later. error 0x8024002e"
