HP updates are taking forever

HP Recommended
Pavilion dv6-3013cl Entertainment Notebook
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

My laptop was gifted to me from my grandma last time she updated the software was 06/29/14. 

My question is why is it taking so long to update/is it even updating. The download is almost instant but the installing is whats taking so long. Should I factory reset it or is there something else I can do. 

Please help me find a solution.

Are you sure these are HP Updates?

 

Asking because the last time I went to update a Win7 laptop, Windows Update saddled me with over 200 updates -- and locked up my PC for two full days downloading and installing the updates.

I'm surprised with that -- because I have an HP DV6 laptop and HP has not updated anything for it since 2012, so I don't understand why a laptop that was working in 2014 will NOW be getting updates.
