Windows Update - Windows Defender

Has anyone else had this issue?

I've been recieving Updates as normal from Windows Update, but there seem to be problems with some Defender Updates (see Pics)

As you can see from the different coloured sections, the same KB/Definition fails many times then Succeeds, but some install 1st time. It's a rather strange issue

I have noticed that a reboot causes the 'Failed' Update to 'Succeed', could it be a problem with the RTM or with Windows Update?

Could they be test updates that Microsoft failed to install until the last one?

If I had my Windows 7 installed prior to the 30th I would be able to post my own results. What I can say is that from the 30th until now I have had no failed updates
