Windows Update Failure, getting error 80071A90

I've also had trouble installing Windows updates.  I tried all of the troubleshooting tips suggested to no avail.  It successfully downloads the updates, but when the computer restarts to install it gets 15% of the way before saying "Failure to configure. Reverting changes."  The error code I get for all failed updates is 80071A90.
