    Same here ,Win10x64,1709 .
    Had to download latest 2 cumulative updates manually , from the MS-site . Installed perfectly however.
    Still wondering why not offered by WUS , the regkey is present ( Quality Compat )
    Only got KB890830 ( monthly update).
    Also here the same problems with 1709 64bit with Avast antivirus free.
    So I also installed KB4074588 manually.
    Because doing this, I expected kb4087256 (serv stack febr) to get also.
    But that do not happen, so I installed this one also manually.
    I think I wait for 1803 in the beginning of April.

    Nope, Eset, but this reg-key is present , could try ( next time) searching for updates with Avast/Eset switched off.............

    My settings only record a failed attempted install of KB4074588, but when I check the installed updates by going through the control panel, KB4074588 is listed as installed. Settings also shows failed installation of video drivers, but the system device manager shows the drivers did successfully update. I'm questioning the accuracy of the update history list. I'm not having any issues with my system, and Windows does show that it has checked for updates and none are required.

    This is a 'Known Issue'. Don't worry, if Control Panel (or Winver) say it's installed then it IS installed.

    Even though the update was successfully installed, Windows Update incorrectly reports that the update failed to install.

    To see fuller update records you can use Event viewer -

    #1 Applications and services logs, Microsoft, Windows, WindowsUpdateClient, Operational, Events - 41, 31 {41 = successful update downloads, 31 = failures of update downloads}
    #2 Windows logs, Setup {this records particular updates but not all of them; it includes Event 4 restart warnings and Event 2 installation successful}
    #3 Windows logs, System, EventSources - WindowsUpdateClient, Event - 19 {update installation successes only}

    Notes

    • You can look in #1 to check that an update downloaded successfully and then #3 to check that it went on to complete a successful installation.
    • I find the presentation of #3 quite easy to export then work with because the description pane's General tab identifies the update concerned [whereas #1 forces you to dig inside the Details tab and that tab is not exported].
    • Note that #3 includes updates to Apps making it, as far as I have been able to find out, the only place where App updates are identified.
    • I only find #2 useful if I'm chasing down problems after having found an update listed in #1 but not in #3.
    • I do not yet understand what gets included in #2; no pattern is apparent.
    • [Added later] When you are looking through these records, look for the KB number not the update's name because the KB number remains constant whilst the name recorded in Event viewer can vary across #1, #2, #3 and can bear little or no relation to the name shown in WU / the Update Catalog / PSWU lists / WU MiniTool lists.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm about to install KB4074588.

    If memory serves, a bunch of updates tend to get installed along with the big "Cumulative Update" like (in this case) KB4074588. Are those always bug fixes and not security updates? Seems like I'd still want them... How can I find any potential updates and make sure I install them as well?
