    You are trying to install an update that was issued last year in December. Cumulative updates are exactly what it says on the tin - cumulative. The latest update includes all the December fixes and then some more. You should try manually installing the latest update, not worrying about this superseded one.

    Cumulative Update KB4074588 Windows 10 v1709 Build 16299.248 - Feb. 13

    If that too fails, then report back and we can suggest other things to try.

    So I gave it a try with the update you said and I am still getting the same issue. It will reboot and say updated failed reverting changes. And windows update still shows it is pending KB4054517.

    There are some standard fixes to attempt (in this order) when a system isn't working as it should.

    1. From a command prompt (Admin) run sfc /scannow (repeat up to 3 times if errors aren't fixed the first time)
    tutorial: Run SFC Command in Windows 10

    2. From a command prompt (Admin) run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    tutorial: Use DISM to Repair Windows 10 Image

    If sfc couldn't fix problems at first, it may be able to after running dism.

    3. An in-place repair install. This will reinstall Windows, while keeping installed apps, programs and user files.
    This is time-consuming, but usually fixes most problems.

    It is a good idea to make a system image before repairing the system, just in case. Macrium Reflect (free) is often recommend in this forum.

    I am experiencing te same isues. So far I have successfuly completed the CheckHealth command, which returned a Healthy status. I proceeded to Step 4 and now there is a sub-window that says:
    Operation
    Running
    [ oooooooooo ]

    How should I interpret the string of zeros?
    What should be my next Steps?

    I have a PC and having been running Windows 10 without issue until about 6 weeks ago. I started experiending BSOD Watchdog Violation and Video Scheduler Internal Error messages. I've been fighting with my PC ever since. I tried deleting the SoftwareUpdate folder but the system is stuck trying to do the KB4054517 update, so I can't delete it to try updating it manually.
    Help please.

    I am also having updates keep failing, For about 2 weeks now it freezes and I have to reboot and it trys again and freezes again at 84% then I reboot again and it restores previous version. This is getting very annoying since it takes me 20 minutes to start my computer.
    I have tried Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth and sfc /scannow still fails!
