Hi,

To answer your query, we would like to inform you that the most common reasons for this error are described in the following table:

Cause number

Cause Explanation
1 Update is superseded As updates for a component are released, the updated component will supersede an older component that is already on the system. When this occurs, the previous update is marked as superseded. If the update that you're trying to install already has a newer version of the payload on your system, you may encounter this error message.
2 Update is already installed If the update that you're trying to install was previously installed, for example, by another update that carried the same payload, you may encounter this error message.
3 Wrong update for architecture Updates are published by CPU architecture. If the update that you're trying to install does not match the architecture for your CPU, you may encounter this error message.
4 Missing prerequisite update Some updates require a prerequisite update before they can be applied to a system. If you are missing a prerequisite update, you may encounter this error message. For example, KB 2919355 must be installed on Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 computers before many of the updates that were released after April 2014 can be installed. 

As for the resolution, the following methods may help you identify and address some of the most common scenarios in which an update is regarded as not applicable:

  • Verify that the package that you're trying to install matches the Windows version that you are using. The Windows version information can be found in the "Applies To" section of the article for each update. For example, Windows Server 2012-only updates cannot be installed on Windows Server 2012 R2-based computers.
  • Verify that the package that you are installing matches the processor architecture of the Windows version that you are using.
    For example, an x86-based update cannot be installed on x64-based installations of Windows.
  • Check that the package that you are installing contains newer versions of the binaries. Or, check that the package is superseded by another new package.
  • Verify that the package that you are trying to install was not previously installed.
  • Check the related articles about the package in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) to make sure that you have the prerequisite updates installed.
