    Anyway, are you running as administrator? Have you checked for malware?
    Is your internet connection live? Those are a few places to check right off
    the top of my head.

    So, what happens? Which error codes are you seeing? When did they start failing?

    My first step is usually to look at the update history and find the oldest failed update, on the principle that "that's where the trouble started". You need to look carefully, because an update that failed one day will often succeed the next - sometimes they succeed after three or four attempts. When you've identified the oldest one look at the error code and see if you can get to the bottom of that one first.
