Windows 8.1 not updating

Okey so we have this machine running windows 8.1 64 bit that doesn't want to install windows updates. It searches for the updates, finds them but when i try to install, it fails and tells me to reboot, after that it doesn't want to search for updates. So i have to run the Microsoft windows update repair tool to fix the problem.
Then its back to square one; So again i scan for updates, finds them, fails to install and tells me to reboot and i have to run the tool again to get it to search the updates.

"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.

1. Try installing the updates one by one - not all of them in a time
2. Of course you are using a licensed Windows 8.1 - right? :)
