I have a small netbook style laptop, it can't/won't install any updates after January this year.
If it has a 32GB "hard drive," it could be that there's not enough room to allow Windows to update. This has been reported with netbook-style laptops from several manufacturers. It didn't stop me from buying one, though in my case I planned from the start to wipe Windows and put Mint on it. I did, and it went from the eMMC "hard drive" being 2/3 full just from Windows to being 2/3 empty with Mint and a bunch of other programs I installed. I did put /home on the external microSD card, but there's not much in there.
