Failure To Configure Windows

Hey guys I work for a school district and I've got a computer that won't take the latest batch of updates. There are 5 of them and the install seems to go fine until it restarts and gets to the configuring Windows, do not turn off your PC screen. It then fails and reverts but it doesn't get stuck in a loop or anything just does the same thing the next time it is restarted. I ran sfc /scanall and it said it found corrupt files but couldn't repair them so I'm guessing this is causing the problem. I looked at the CBS log which I'm attaching and I'm just not sure where to go from here. I've been doing some research on how to read the log and I'm just kind of lost because of how big the file is. I'd really appreciate if someone could lend me a hand. Thanks.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums sorry for the late response
See post #2 and make sure those 2 updates are installed,
Windows Update will not update and I've tried multiple fixes

You might also make sure the windows update settings are excluding to mix up recommended updates with the actual important ones and just load the important ones first

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll give them a shot this morning and see if they can solve the problem. Thanks

EDIT: I can't thank you enough, I followed the 2nd post in that thread and it seems to have done the trick. All 5 of the updates went through without a problem. I really appreciate your help!
