First run the system readiness tool and then restart the computer.

After restarting the computer install the updates.

If the above system readiness tool  is not able to fix the problem then follow this step.

The updates that are failing are security updates. This could be caused by a security software that is installed.

So do clean boot and then try to install the updates.

Clean Boot Process
Click Start-msconfig-click on services tab -put a check on hide all microsoft services and then click disable all. Click on startup tab and disable all.

Restart the computer and then install updates.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

restart computer, then it will ask you to install all the updates again.  make sure your not installing something else though or they will fail.
