Windows 7: windows 7 monthly updates not working?

windows 7 monthly updates not working?

Every month I install Windows 7 updates comprised of a package of several updates. Updates
always install successfully except for the master update which is always named the same except
for YYYY-MM and KBXXXXXXX in YYYY-MM Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7
for x64-based Systems (KBXXXXXXX). This master update always fails, requiring a time
consuming restore and restart.

For instance, this months master update was titled 2018-07 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for
Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4338818).

Is there a way to tell the update program not to include the master update?
