Sufficient disk space
When you update a component, you might see error messages stating that there is not sufficient disk space while trying to install Windows Update components. This is because; the update files are in a compressed format during the download and require extra space to uncompress. To install the component, increase the free hard disk space on your Toshiba Satellite U500. Use Add or Remove Programs to remove programs that you no longer use and use Disk Cleanup to delete files you do not need.
Authentic Operating System
Before checking for any updates, you need to ensure that the Operating System installed on your Toshiba Satellite U500 is authentic. Using illegitimate versions of the Operating System will lead to software counterfeiting which will prevent you from checking for updates on your Toshiba Satellite U500. These pirated versions of the Operating System can easily spy on user activity and steal data.
After installing all the updates, you should restart your Toshiba Satellite U500 to configure those updates. Then, you can check for any change in settings in the Operating System and also check whether all the newly added features after the update are working without any issues. If not, you need to uninstall those updates and reinstall them again. In some cases, incomplete update errors can occur while you update the components.
