HELP! Windows won't update and I'm stuck behind!

I've tried a handful of the the remedies provided by this site. And none of them have worked, I've been up all night trying to figure out how to update Windows.
It keeps failing, and keeps providing the error Some update files are missing or have problems. We'll try to download the update again later. Error code: (0x80070003), I'm trying to install 2020-12 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 2004 for x64-based Systems (KB4592438).

If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know quickly, and as soon as possible.

As a reference, it restarts 2 to 3 times, after reaching the average percentage of 38.3333333333%.

What defines "rebooting", because I've tried restarting, powering off and on (including the power source version, "hard reset").
And, you can even see the website I linked, it includes similar methods
I'm very lost as to what to do, I'm probably gonna finish trying these methods, since I got some sleep, but I'm fearful they won't work either.
