Error while installing Exchange 2013 CU3

When I try to install Exchange 2013 CU3 I receive the below error.

I try to install the error as I read about a fix in relation to an RPC error, that cause my Outlook clients to disconnect every now and then from the Exchange server. Unfortunately I can not apply the update due to the below error.

Is there anyone who has seen this before?

The environment is Windows Server 2012 in combination with Microsoft Exchange 2013.

Try stopping the exchange services especially the ones showing up on the log ExchangeFrontEndTransport and ExchangeTransport services then try applying the cumulative update again.
If they services take too long to stop, kill the processes in task manager.

Did you try to restart the server, make sure that all requires services are running (Test-ServiceHealth in EMS), and then install CU3?

You can speed up the CU3 installation if you open Internet Eplorer/Advanced settings and uncheck the option "Check for Publisher's Certificate Revocation".

I killed the process and then installed the CU for MS Exchange.
I didn't like to do this, as I read about updates that crashed, however it went good here.

thanks
