I then looked at each profile ID and found the one with Profile Image Path of C:\Users\UpdatusUser
This is the key I deleted. It is apparently something to do with Nvidia. A link to the instructions are below.
I'm still unable to install both kb3081424 (from 2 weeks ago) and kb3081438. Is there any reason to stick with Windows 10 right now if I can't even perform updates? Apparently Microsoft hasn't even mentioned a fix for this, much less even mentioned the issue.
The registry "fix" wouldn't apply to me since I'm the only account that's ever been on the machine? Is that correct?
Roll back to Windows 8.1 at this point?
Perhaps if you started your own thread, and laid out your system specs and what you've tried so far, some of the experts here could work on your particular system, and try to get this update installed for you?

I'm assuming it'll be available through the official Windows Update very soon, so I guess I'll hold out. I believe you can only access the catalogue through IE, and I read about some issues with users trying to do so.
I am unable to install KB3081438. It goes into the install/reboot/fail/uninstall/download/install/reboot/fail/eat/lather/ rinse/repeat loop.
Attached is the Windows Update log (via powershell's get-windowsupdatelog command). I have not one red bloody clue as to what's going wrong -- the log's just a bit thick for me.
