I am very surprised, I got my problem solved, but actually I don't know what fixed it but i just remember that the only thing I did was scanning my PC with Malwarebyte's, it found two Trojans,Downloader and I removed them, after reboot I got my windows update notification that got new updates(important&optional).
Thanks if someone wanted to help, but couldn't or didn't have any idea.
