I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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

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.

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.
