Windows 7: Failed Update: Error Code 80073071

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Failed Update: Error Code 80073071

On Sept 21. 2017 I was attempting to install 2017-09 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4038777). I came back to my computer 20 minutes later only to find that the installation was Unsuccessful (Error Code 80073701). I have attempted many of the online fixes, but none have worked. Since that day I have been unable to install subsequent updates. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
