I tried the Windows Update one, but it did not resolve my issue. After the updates install, the computer restarts, and then says "Configuring Windows updates" and then "Failure configuring updates--reverting changes..."
Edit: found this thread: "Failure configuring updates" message - advice please! and am going to try its advice.
Edit 2: Following the advice from the thread above, I was able to install them by manually choosing to download and install them one-by-one. Hopefully this solved the problem permanently.
