When this happens to me (just did - code 8007038) I install the updates one at a time.
Worked for me.

That's OK - I was expecting that, as the 'update' files aren't normally renamed until later in the process.

As far as I can tell, both those files are correct - but I may be looking for the wrong file.

What happens if you attempt to install this update from the download?
Download Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2496898) from Official Microsoft Download Center

...and also this one?
Download Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2957189) from Official Microsoft Download Center

post the new windowsupdate.log file after each attempt, then post the new CBS.log file when you've attempted both.

Odd that WU is referring back to a problem with the first one - perhaps this is the root cause of the problem?

Here's the error for the second one in the CBS.log...

I'm a little confused at the moment.
I need to dive into this update and see what I can find - unfortunately one of the files referenced is not on my machine at present, so it could take a while.

... I can't believe I haven't asked for this before...

Please run SFC /SCANNOW and post the CBS.log file...

SFC -System File Checker - Instructions
Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-click on the Command Prompt entry
Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.
At the Command prompt, type
SFC /SCANNOW
and hit the Enter key
Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.

Upload the CBS.log file again
