Windows 7: All Windows Updaates failed. ERROR DETAILS: Code 80071A2D

All Windows Updaates failed. ERROR DETAILS: Code 80071A2D


I am trying to download and install windows updates so that they will be installed in my image when i come to deploy this for a client.

At the moment they are installing and then on reboot saying "Failed to configure windows updates" "Reverting change"

I imagine this will be quite a common error and a potentially easy fix.

Can anyone shed some light on this?
