This is a known issue, Windows 7 / Windows Server 2008 R2 may fail to install the cumulative update if you do not have KB3177467 Servicing stack update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 September 2016 installed.

You may like to consider to perform below steps:
1. Download and install KB3177467

2. Run Windows Update again or manually download and install KB4457144
