have you tried stopping the windows update service, deleting everything in windows\softwaredistribution then starting windows update service and trying that update again?

Author

Commented:
Actually I did do that after posting the question.  I stopped the service, deleted everything from the download folder, and then restarted Windows and started Windows Update.

There are two more recent update files that have also been failing, KB4516065 and KB4531786.  

Update is currently trying to download those three files with 0 kb downloaded, and 0% complete.  Just spinning its wheels at the moment; don't know why.

All three of the updates failed.  This is for the subject update:

have you installed the march servicing stack and SHA-2 updates (required for 4516065)?

Hi Seth -- No, I don't know what those are.  Would that fix the 3126587 failures? -- Tom

try also first removing the 2-3 last updates, then start again

Hi Nobus -- the 587 update failure started in April 2018 and I was not aware of it until now.  It fails every night.  There were two "Security Intelligence updates" that were successful during the last week. -- Tom

It's been sitting at 56% complete for awhile now.  Should I restart it?  I don't know whether it is still running. The hard drive light is on almost constant so I think it is running or stuck in a loop.

It's still running, just jumped to 65%.

And done.  Found corrupt files but could not fix all, so going to rerun it.

After second run, still some unfixed corrupt files.  Running again, #3.

Ran a 4th time, still some corrupted files that were not corrected.

Per WindowsSevenForums, I downloaded and am running the System Update Readiness tool.  It started a Windows Update Standalone Installer that appears to be spinning its wheels and not going anywhere.  Should I skip that and move to the Repair/Install?

from your log, all errors point to  :
 CSI    00000205 [SR] Cannot verify component files for Microsoft-Windows-VirtualPC-VMSAL.Resources, Version = 7.1.7601.17514, pA = PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_AMD64 (9), Culture = [l:10{5}]"hu-HU", VersionScope = 1 nonSxS, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type neutral, TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral, manifest is damaged (TRUE)

so it's good to run the tool; but if it hangs, try a repair

Maybe.  I did a repair/install and am now running Windows update needing over 100 updates.  Will see what I end up with.  If errors remain, I will check CPU.

Commented:
if the repair went well - and so do the updates, i assume it is a software fault - not hardware
but it never hurts to check the temps, and with a short test test it

Hi Nobus --

Still working the updates (why do they take so long?)  Anyways, KB3126587 was successfully installed, but KB4516065 and KB4531786 still failing.  Also have a new one for Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 x64.

A few months ago I was getting shutdowns due to high temps.  I found a bunch of dust in the heat sink over the cpu and cleaned it out.  Temps have since been fine since.

Commented:
Still some Windows updates fails, as noted above, but the long term KB3126587 has been installed successfully.  

Also, I ran SFC again and it came back clean (no errors).

So, since the issue for which I posted this question has been fixed, and since the SFC came back clean, I will close this unless you, Nobus, have some further comment/suggestion.

>>  Temps have since been fine since.  <<  are you monitoring them ?

anyhow - if it is fixed after running sfc  - then that seems to be the cure

Author

Commented:
Yes, I have a temperature monitor that displays the temps.  Got it during shutdowns and led me to the problem with dust.

Okay, will shut this down.  But I may be back with the update issues that seem to be ongoing.    Thanks.

Commented:
Seth -- Thanks for your quick response.

Nobus -- Thanks again.  But I still need to figure out these Windows Update failures!
