I am attempting to apply the latest round of updates for Windows 8.1. The system is an ASUS P1801 All-in-One with i7-3770K processor, a Samsung 840 Series 512GB SSD and an nVidia 730M video card with 2GB of video RAM. FWIW, the system experienced some problems with updates back in April that required a lengthy intervention from Microsoft (ticket number available upon request.) Those problems seemed to be rooted in a general problem with core component corruption within Windows. That corruption had damaged the administrative account I was using and repair of that as well as a general repair of Windows itself fixed the issue with those updates.
As to the problem encountered earlier today - it seems that all the updates finally were able to be installed EXCEPT for:
Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 8.1 for x64-based Systems (KB2957689)
Installation date: 6/10/2014 2:00 PM
Installation status: Failed
Error details: Code 800F0922
Update type: Important
Installing the other updates (approximately 20 or 21 including one optional - the others were all listed as "Important") had to be in a series of steps. When I tried to install all at once it failed after installing 13 Important updates. I then installed the remaining updates by ones and twos until they all installed except for the above noted Internet Explorer 11 update.
I have read a bit on the error code (800F0922) and some seem to be writing that re-installing Windows fixed the issue but first, I don't want to have to do that unless there is no option, and second, this approach was in reference to another KB and not the one listed above. I also read the MS14-035 document that concerns the installation of KB2857689 itself and it stated that update KB2919355 or KB2929347 must be present in order to install KB2957689 successfully. I have confirmed that KB2919355 has been successfully installed but still no joy in stalling KB2957689.
Any thoughts on the above issue and how to approach it?
Thanks in advance,
