Win 7 Pro Updates Error with Code 80073701

I have several updates that are failing on a Windows 7 Pro x64 laptop with error code 80073701. I have tried installing in diag mode, installing updates individually, but no luck. I am attaching the file - at least I have attempted to - keep getting 404 errors after it uploads.

The upload gets to 96% and errors out with: 404 - File or directory not found.

I see the size limit is 8M for zip files, so I'll upload files individually. Attached to this are 3 zip files that make up the CBS.log file.
