    I just found this on Microsoft forums posted by an ms chap

    Windows Defender team has identified a problematic signature that could cause this failure on some machines. We are deploying a fix this afternoon, and you should see the problem mitigated. If you are still seeing this exact problem (error code 0x80508007 on update) on 12/13/2017 or later, please reply to the thread with your signature version.”

    Your right, I didn’t clock the code being different but I guess it’s all ultimately linked to the same problem. Hopefully tomorrow it’ll be sorted out

    Seems to be an extra page on that thread which says people are getting the exact same error code we have been getting
