Here's the first thing I'd try to reset the Updates cache:

in elevated Command prompt type: net stop "windows update" and press Enter.
In File Explorer delete folder C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution
Reboot and check for and Install updates.

Malwarebytes shouldn't be run in safe-mode anyway. So that isn't a problem.

Try selecting only a few updates at a time, not all at once. Start with the oldest first (the date published should show when you select an update).
