Update install failure

My Pc is a Dell Inspiron 531, running Windows 7 64 bit. I received the updates available message and clicked install and received an unable to install updates message but no suggested fixes or where to start looking for assistance.

There must have been a lot of updates. I know I have seen reports of problems with upadates when too many were installed at once. I would suggest, as a try, select to install only one or two. If that does not work change the selection. Lets hope that you get lucky and it works.

Many thanks for your suggestion. However, that was one of the first things I tried without success. So looks like back to the drawing board for me.

I think your problem is different from mine as it sounds more serious. My problem was that update downloads would not install. After I posted my question on the forum I received several replies. For me the simplest for me to use was merely trying to install the updates one at a time which I did and it worked. Sorry if this is no help but I am not really tech minded. lamarque
