updates failing to install

I was having the same problem - so I installed manually 2 at a time. Worked for me 30 minutes ago. Good luck!

Seems like Windows Updates have been really borked this month, including mine. I also went the individual install route after an update reset, sfc scan, and a System Restore.
No one has come forward with an explanation yet though.

Hi Dom,
Sorry it took this long to reply, I was on vacation. I see you have discovered the manual updates solution but thought I would still reply. I never did find a solution. Pretty much gave up as I was not prepared to do a clean install. I am doing the updates manually and it has been working fine that way.
