Hi @Jes

If you are using Windows Vista Service Pack 2, then its Extended Support End Date is Apr/11/2017. Otherwise all the other version's support is ended well before 2012.

This means Microsoft will stop all the windows updated for Windows Vista Service Pack 2 by Apr/11/2017. If you have previous version. Windows already stopped the windows updated services.

You may try to update the services via -

Just like @Aravi said, which I was about to write similar to this..

Check to make sure what service pack you have with your Windows disk or from re-install via your PC if you have an install/partitioned drive to re-install, I have a few different PC's with random Windows versions from XP to Windows 10, I have two PC's with Vista, one has Service Pack 1, the other with Service Pack 2, the Service Pack 1 won't allow me to update much like yourself including even installing Service Pack 2 as you can not. With my Service Pack 2 Vista, so far haven't had issues with updates, though this will be a problem in 12 months time or so, but I have no need to update anything beyond SP2 anyways, besides they are just my muck around PC's, I only use current Windows now.

Hope this helps.
