Have you tried doing the updates using DISM++?

I hope this helps!

DISM++ [Deployment Image Servicing and Management]

DISM++ is a FREE implementation tool that has the ability to perform Windows Updates. Some of the advantages [but not all] are:

[1] The GUI is very easy to understand and use.
[2] It is much faster than Microsofts WU because it uses a different engine.
[3] It gives you the option of what you want to install.
[4] It doesn’t install superseded updates like Microsoft does.
[5] It warns you of any suspect and Telemetry updates, and any updates that have known issues.
[6] It doesn’t require re-booting between updates.
[7] It can be used to either update an install.wim image offline, or to update the live OS.

This is discussed and explained here => Update your Win 7 installation media. It is quite a long thread, but you will see the parts that are applicable!

It is best to run the DISM++ Windows update a couple of times to make sure you get ALL the updates that are needed. DON’T install the ORANGE ones though [you could just install the ones that DISM++ recommends]. It can also install the required .NET Framework updates. Then just run WU to see what other updates are available.

If you need further information then please let me know!

I hope this helps!
