October 17, 2017—KB4043961 (OS Build 16299.19) Windows 10 Update Fails to Install

I am running the Windows Insider build of Windows 10 Home (64-bit).  Every single night the PC tries to run a particular update ("October 17, 2017—KB4043961 (OS Build 16299.19)") and it fails.

I have tried to run it manually by downloading it and then running it.  Still fails.

Anyone know how to get it to install or get it out of the update list so it stops trying to install it?

I would love to install it if possible but seeing the failure every day fr the past several months is starting to wear me down.  lol

"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.

AS a last resort try the following...

Backup your data, wipe the computer and do a fresh install.

I left the office for the day so I can take a screenshot tomorrow.
It is a page outside of the paging area type of message. After the air is shown data is collected and then the PC automatically reboots.
During the subsequent boot the update is backed out.
you can disable also that update -  and wait for the next one

If that installs, all is well. If it does not, do an inplace upgrade using these steps: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/16397-repair-install-windows-10-place-upgrade.html
