Sadly ,none of the solutions (including number 2 ) fixed the problem. Still computer can not install the update and finishes with an error messege and roll backs the changes it made. 

Any other possible solution?

Unfortunately this seems to be a known issue and Microsoft is working on a solution: standard methods we tried already failed, so the only thing we can do at this moment is hiding the update request. The update that most probably is causing this issue is KB4056892.

Please try to hide this update and see if other updates are able to install consequently.

Please let me know if this works.
