Bad update KB4093112 (OS Build 16299.371) Windows 10

This update "April 10, 2018—KB4093112 (OS Build 16299.371) " continually fails. Reboots my computer 2x a day trying to install it for the last week. I get this code "Last failed install attempt on ‎4/‎17/‎2018 - 0x80070643" Clicking on the link takes me to the Microsoft page "https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4093112/windows-10-update-kb4093112". Followed some hints there to no avail.
 It is listed as installed when I go to uninstall updates. I uninstall it, go to update catalog and download the update and attempt to install it. I then get an error message that I don't need the update.
Wanting to now how to just kill this update or at least stop the attempted failing installs.

There's a newer update by now:  https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4093105 (2nd from the top). Try it. If it does not work, do the repair process as indicated in John's comment.

That update is working fine here on several computers.

1. Run DISM.  Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth  . Allow to complete, restart and try updating again.

2. If no, run a Windows 10 Repair Install and Keep Everything.

Windows 10 is running, so click on the Download button (not Upgrade Button, select Open (Run) but NOT Save. Allow the program to run. Allow drivers to update. Then select Keep Everything.

Though the repair process (2.) would also be my recommendation against update problems in many cases, there are lighter steps we can take ín the first place:
1 verify your build number using the command
winver

Open in new window

See if the output is indeed lower than 16299.371 and share your findings
2 If it is lower, open an elevated command prompt and execute
net stop wuauserv & rd c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution /s /q & net start wuauserv

Open in new window

and search for updates once more.

 Finally had time to run through what you posted and unfortunately in the end same problem still existed.

Ran your suggestions, but still no success.

It wouldn't be so bad, except I just last month wiped the system and teinstalled Windows 10 Enterprise on this computer.

This is what I see now
Update status
After several reboots and shut downs I no longer get message that I have update(s) to install. However when I run winver it still shows Version 1709 (OS Build 16299.309

I no longer get message that I have update(s) to install.

So now try running Windows Update again. What happens?

If I were you, I'd try the inplace upgrade repair process now. It heals updating problems.
