Win2008R2 server - failure to confiure Windows updates reverting changes

Today, I tried to install updates on one of my windows 2008R2 server from windows update. Installation completed and I reboot the server. After reboot the server got message " Failure to Configure Updates - Reverting Changes ...". After 15 minutes staying on this screen the server boots and I am seeing in the windows event log that installation for most of the security updates failed.
Could you tell me how to fix this problem.

usually just retrying the installation fixes this problem.

Agree with @ve3ofa

Depending on how many updates this can from time to time be normal...I've had this occur before - then after installing the 'problem updates' on the second attempt they work fine...try installing again and you'll probably be ok

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I am trying to figure it out what has happened, so I can avoid it in the future.
From eventlog I see that the error message is :

Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x80070020: Security Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2753842).

I checked the windowsupdate.log and I see a lot of messages like this:

19:05:13:046       788      f28      DnldMgr      Regulation: {9482F4B4-E343-43B6-B170-9A65BC822C77} - Update 9B8CFD86-7878-4E9A-A2E6-56B89E9C41B1 is "PerUpdate" regulated and can NOT download. Sequence 4081 vs AcceptRate 0.
2013-07-01      19:05:13:046       788      f28      DnldMgr        * Update is not allowed to download due to regulation.

Attached is windowsupdate.log file from my server.

I will appreciate if you check it and give me any opinion.
Thank you.
