Did you check to see if it was already installed?

Perhaps because of changes on the Windows Update servers.

I did check AFAIR and it wasn't there. When it happens again, I'll check that edbstore thing.

I did fix it but it's not easy. Also it took many attempts over several weeks!

For now open an Elevated Command Prompt

[EDIT: Type powershell and hit enter then paste the following]

Code:
get-hotfix -id kb3083325,kb3083324,kb2976978,kb3075853,kb3065987,kb3050265,kb3075851,kb2902907,kb3068708,kb3022345,kb2952664,kb2990214,kb3035583,kb971033,kb3021917,kb3044374,kb3075249,kb3080149
Enable Quick Edit Mode - see link below. To paste, highlight the code above and paste into command prompt window via right click.

Post a screenshot of the result.

It means that it will check and display which of those are installed. It will not install anything. I've had the issue several times over the last 6 to 12 months. Currently it has not returned.

Check Windows Update settings are set to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download or install them" and uncheck "Give me recommended updates the same way I recieve important updates"

Uninstall KB2990214

Open an Elevated Command Prompt then type

Powershell

Press Enter and wait for the prompt then type

wusa /uninstall /kb:2990214 /quiet /norestart

Reboot once the update has been removed.

Run Disk Cleanup like this:

Windows Updates - Remove Outdated Updates in Windows 7

Reboot.






Press Enter.

It is an update for Windows Update Client. You don't need them both. Use IE to visit this link:

https://catalog.update.microsoft.com...7-68198f223f0f

Read the information in the Package Details tab.

Note: Suggest keeping kb3075851 for now.
