Mine used to want to run the same 11 updates over and over every 2 days.
Now, it wants to do 12.
I shut it off (updates), partly also b/c I'm nervous about it someday deciding to upgrade me to Windows 10 without asking; I'm still watching how others make out before I jump into that.
Someone also said when you update to Windows 10 it saves all your old Windows 7 (or whatever), and requires about XX-GB of free HD space, and I only run 30GB free space anyways.
But getting back to your original question, every so often I try to run updates, and that's been my experience; endless re-updater loop.
