Error code 80070643 while installing Office 2013 updates


When I try to install the recent batch of Office 2013 updates, Windows Update returns the error code 80070643. After some research, I found that this error code relates to Office 2003 updates on Windows 7. However, this does not correlate to my problem, as I am running Windows 8 64bit which is a recent install.

I would appreciate your help.



It appears the solution is to uninstall and reinstall Office 2013
