FIX: ‘Your Device Needs The Latest Security Updates’ In Windows 10
You may experience this problem, if you’re lagging much behind with Windows 10 versions. For example, if you’re on V1511 and the latest version as of today is V1709. This creates a big generation gap between Windows 10 version. Due to this reason, Windows Update assumes that your system is no longer secure as it is not the latest one. Hence it attempts to download the latest version as in this case, but it however fails to install it.

- Reset Windows Update database
- Block the feature updates or the updates Windows keep trying to download/install
