As I understand you are getting an error when performing Windows update. Don't worry as I have a few steps to help you get through this concern,
To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:
Are there any pending updates in the system?
Have you tried to running any test on the computer?
Have you made any software or hardware changes on the PC?
In the meantime, let's try these steps here:
Perform a Hard reset on the PC
Next thing, I would suggest here is to run the system diagnostics test as well as an extensive test on the Hard drive and Memory from F2 (Please remember to capture the failure ID for further assistance).
Depending on the test results, if all the test passes, I would suggest you perform a system recovery. Doing this will wipe off everything and set the computer back to the original factory conditions. So, please remember to back up your data before initiating system recovery. If for some reason the recovery fails. The only other way to install Windows would be to order the recovery media for your laptop and using the recovery media you can install Windows. You can check if the recovery media is available online on www.hp.com/drivers by entering the exact model no. of your laptop. To find the exact model no. click here: http://hp.care/2bygf7l
Otherwise, you could also reach HP phone support to order the recovery media. If your product is Out of warranty, please choose paid options to get the tech support number.
