'2018-09 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1803 for x64-based Systems (KB4464218)' keeps failing with error message "0x80073712"

As mentioned in the subject line, this update keeps failing with error message "0x80073712" -- So the exact message:

Some update files are missing or have problems. We'll try to download the update again later. Error Code: (0x80073712)

Even downloaded the update manually and tried installing but manual update failed as well.

Have tried many solutions mentioned over the internet, including the below:

net stop wuauserv 
net stop cryptSvc 
net stop bits 
net stop msiserver 
Ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old 
Ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old 
net start wuauserv 
net start cryptSvc 
net start bits 
net start msiserver 

Ran the sfc /scannow as well, and it repaired the corrupted files which were found but then again no success with installation of update.

Also, at the end -- I finally reset my windows 10 even hoping that whatever the issue was, it would be gone after resetting the PC but no.

To add, this happened on both of my laptops. For one of them, after a few attempts it just automatically finished the update (nothing special I had to do) but for the other laptop i have been struggling since yesterday and sadly, kept getting same results. Any help with this would be appreciated.

I, too, am damned tired of the run-around on the part of Microsoft.  This needs to be resolved quickly.

I hope you put those in reverse order because it's my laptop that has the issue... and, from what i understand, most people are experiencing something similar: PCs update but laptops fail again and again.  MS must fux this soon!

Hi All, I keep having the same error with installing the cumulative update, I have tried to install via the downloaded file from the catalogue, and I keep having install errors, when I use the updater, I have the error message 0x80073712, when I use the downloaded installer, it thinks it is installing, takes a good few minutes, then says the following was not installed....

What is going on? From what I read this is a well known issue, for a good few days, and where is Msoft on this? Very annoying!!
