    Your windows could have some corruption. Find command prompt in the start menu, right click on it and choose 'run as admin'. Type:
    sfc /scannow
    Press enter and await results.

    Once the scanner has finished try running windows update again but check which update it's downloading. Some updates like Service pack 1, depending on the system, will need other updates for it to complete. If the updates still fail to install correctly then please post which updates they are and we may be able to help further.

    Once we've sorted out the updates we can then move on to the USB if it's still failing to work.

    What does the device manager say? Is there any yellow question marks?

    Have you checked for malware? Try running Malwarebytes:
    https://www.malwarebytes.org/

    Are you sure the USB stick still works? Have you tried it in different usb ports or in a different machine?

    Have you tried updating the USB drivers on the laptop?

    Sorry couldn't read the language used. Did the machine pass the upgrade advisor test?

    Which report though? I downloaded three and they were Everest reports not the windows 7 upgrade advisor.
