Have you tried recreating the SoftwareDistribution folder?
Stop Automatic Updates and the Background Intelligent Transfer Service from Windows Services
Then delete the following folder: C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution
Restart the Automatic Updates service which will recreate this default folder under C:\Windows
Try Windows updates again.

Problem resolved by removing Compatibility pack for 2007 office by Windows installer utility & re-installed it, And installed the patches successfully.

That worked for the 0x8007066F error code.

Thanks jcimarro
