Hello I'm trying to apply a windows standalone update to my system, I'm sure that I've got the correct one for my system.  However it keeps saying "This update is not applicable to your system"  So I looked in "View Installed Updates" to try & locate the update, there's only 7 updates under "Microsoft Windows" none of which are the ones I'm trying to install.  The 7 updates listed are as follows:
KB4480966
KB4346084
KB4477137
KB4343669
Three updates for Adobe Flash Player

I'm pretty certain there should be more listed I'm certain that more are installed.  The one's I'm trying to install the following updates:
KB4457128
KB4103721
KB4343909
KB4471324
KB4480966

I'm running Windows 10, after running a scan the above updates are listed as needed for .NET Framework 3.5 updates.

Why not just use Windows Update as that will pick the correct updates and apply them. True on all our machines.

Why are you trying to manually select other updates (apparently)?

We're manually installing updates because we're on a closed loop network.

Then you need to research what updates you need. Windows 10 will pick what it needs and not install inappropriate updates. So if updates don't install, you have picked the wrong updates. This could be a lot of work for you.
