.NET Update Will Not Install

Last Modified: 2015-04-17
After a Windows 7 Pro SP1 repair install to resolve Windows Update issues, when I boot I receive a notification that .NET 4 Framework must be repaired and that I should not switch the computer off until Setup has finished. I am also unable to install the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile for Windows 7 x64-based Systems (KB982670):

"Installation date: ‎4/‎15/‎2015 8:05 PM

Installation status: Failed

Error details: Code 643

Update type: Recommended

The Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile provides a subset of features from the .NET Framework 4. The Client Profile is designed to run client applications and to enable the fastest possible deployment for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Windows Forms technology."

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
