Windows 7: Unable to install latest windows updates

Unable to install latest windows updates

Don't see my post of one hour ago? Will try again: I do not have the update icon in the system tray despite the fact that it is activated in the tray notification configure setting and when I check for updates I see 20+. If I check the important updates listed and click OK nothing happens - I do not get an install button - oh yes I do get an install button for Win 10 (not ready for it).

I have tried the Microsoft Fixit and the various troubleshooting suggestions to no avail.

Any suggestions would be appreciated
