Update Error Code 8E5E0152

I have accumulated 27 updates that fail to install when I try to download and install them.  I get an error code 8E5E0152 when I attempt to install them.  I cannot find any information on this error code.  I am running Windows Vista Home Premium on an HP Pavillion A6030n.  I have tried to install them several times and get the same error code each time I try.
