Three windows updates showed up yesterday May 14 2019 for me in windows update. Two installed just fine, but this one major one keeps failing to install.
I just keep getting Failed to install after it all downloads fine, creates restore point, and goes to 'installing'... failed, error 80073701.
I've tried everything- restarting a million times, downloaded and used the WindowsUpdate troubleshooter/repair program (it says it has 'fixed' the various problems, but the same problems show up in it again if I run the troubleshooter again immediately... so how is that 'fixing' it?), I tried clearing the SoftwareDistribution folder, disabling any antivirus, I downloaded the stand alone .msu file for the update KB4499164 and that won't install either- it runs through its thing completely and then says failed. (BTW I did have the latest stack update from March applied successfully, 4490628).
This is supposed to be the CRITICAL security update, right?- to prevent a new wannacry-like malware attack?
I had three updates show up yesterday- the other two installed fine yesterday (which tells me my windows update 'can' work if it wants to), but this one KB4499164 just will NOT install. I've tried over and over and i worked my way through the windows update troubleshooting page that goes through all the steps one by one, did them all but nothing helps.
I know this is supposed to be a really important security protection update...
Anyone else having this problem??
