  1. Windows Updates fail to install an already installed update error???


    I had already installed, successfully I might add, a Definitions update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB3115321). The Update already installed and now it keeps coming up with the same error unable to install update:
    Definition Update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB3115321) 32-Bit Edition - Error 0x80070643
    I tried uninstalling the installed update and Windows won't do it returning an "Unspecified error" response. I have Windows 10 Home (32bit) installed and I cannot find a way to get Update, as you used to be able do, to HIDE the offending update. (THANKS Microsoft for removing functionality from Windows YET AGAIN).
    I'm at my wits end with this. . I have asked about this problem before directly reporting the issue to Microsoft (Surprise surprise... NO RESPONSE. I'd get a better response from a brick wall). Seriously not happy; considering cutting my losses and reverting (AS I STILL HAVE MY INSTALL DISCS) to Windows 7 or moving to Linux. Way to go to p**s off users!

    :)

  2. KB4051963 - Installation fail

    Windows update installs KB4051963, reboots, and tells me that the installation failed, then it want to install again, does so and fails, and again and and again...

    I have downloaded the update and run manually, It tells me that is already installed in the system.

    Any solution to make windows update understand that this update is already installed in the system?

  3. KB3081424 fails to update, but is already installed?

    Some progress. Still failing to install the "Cumulative" updates:

    Same error code (0x80070011):

    Seems like only the "Cumulative" updates are the only ones throwing errors and failing to install.

  4. Windows Updates fail to install an already installed update error???

    Problem solved. Used the Microsoft Show/Hide Updates Troubleshooter tool. Why did I have to go looking for this? This is a useful part of Windows functionality... What were they thinking of removing it. then hiding the tool? (Rhetorical questions; I know why. Thank you Nanny Microsoft, but I'm a better programmer than most of your shiftless lot)
