Sounds like it fails some update and tries again and again. It's not the only explanation but the most likely one. If you don't want to reinstall, you can check update history, identify the failing update and try to install it manually. You can look up the update on microsoft's site by its KB number, then download and install it.

Additional general ways to attempt repairs is running chkdsk in command prompt as administrator:
chkdsk /f c:
(it should automatically scan after a reboot)

And DISM repair:
dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
Also running an AV scan such as malwarebytes and adwcleaner should not hurt if you haven't yet.

It is also a good idea to check disk health. you can use the free gsmartcontrol tool for that.
