    Problems Installing KB3172985

    Been trying to install this update since it's release. I've tried numerous fixes seen on the web, no joy. Update download fine, always gets to 98% complete then states it can't complete the update and rolls it back. Then of course, good old microsoft downloads it again, and boom, same old loop, I've finally hidden the update. Today, I got a line on KB 3172988, supposedly it fixed some issues in 2985 but same results for me............98% complete then ect ect ect. I've ran the update troubleshooter...........no issues, ran disk clean up to include windows update. Stop/started the update service though other updates install fine. I've been running win 10 for about 4 months now, first time I've ever had an issue, updating or other wise. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated........Thanks.
