Windows 7: Update kb2553347 returns error 6BB

Update kb2553347 returns error 6BB

After the lastest Windows Update I get error code 6BB for kb2553347 (Update for Microsoft Office 2010 64-bit)

After the first time it gave me the error I tried sfc scannow and it found corrupt files (
I found a solution for this - SFCFix (

Another run of scannow - no corrupted files.

But the update kept refusing to install.

I got Windows Update Readiness Tool. Ran it. Something got installed.
But that didn't help for 6BB error.

My CBS folder is 80Mb so I uploaded it to zippyshare. ->

There is no point in fixing those errors you found - they are not errors in the file system, but in detection, thanks to an MS screwup.
They promise that they'll get around to fixing them (but don't hold your breath!)
You can either ignore them, or uninstall KB3068708 and hide it when it reappears in the update list.
There are no significant errors in either CBS.log, CheckSUR.log, or the latest CBSPersist file.

Is Service Pack 2 for Office 2010 installed? - it's a pre-requisite for this update.

Windows Update returns errors
Almost every time I've done a Windows Update check I get an error - either the windows servers aren't in the firewall exclusions or the time isn't syncronised between my PC and the update servers. Or something equally unintelligible! Anybody had similar or other results?
