    This sounds all too familiar. I bet the OP is suffering from the KB4090913/KB4090914 corruption. What build does the system say it's at? Settings/System/About. KB4088776 won't install and the prior updates won't uninstall in that situation.
    Hi jamis. Apologies for the delay in this thread.

    1) I have advised the build, etc, in a post above.

    2) Having briefly spoken to someone who knows a lot about this stuff, he seemed to feel the same as you, ie,

    the OP is suffering from the KB4090913/KB4090914 corruption.

    so the question now is, what do i do about it ?

    I am loath to have to re-install W10, and please refrain from any suggestions to play around with the registary, etc, as that sort of thing is way beyond me.

    PS, the situation is the same - no further updates have downloaded, and the trouble shooter is useless.

    I had a similar problem with KB4058258 which left behind unremovable traces, even after uninstalling it...

    I've tried uninstalling the latest cumulative update and reinstalling it, but this doesn't seem to remove whatever was causing this problem. The only solution I've found that removes all trace of KB4058258 is to perform an in-place repair install.
    Cumulative Update KB4058258 Windows 10 v1709 Build 16299.214 - Jan. 31

    An in-place repair upgrade reinstalls windows but, crucially, lets you keep all your installed apps, files and most of the settings.

    Hi all, just an update on this issue ..

    It appears that things are correcting themselves - probably as a result of MS releasing the fix,as they said they would.

    But what a fix it is ..

    Whatever it was, it took hours to download, and my computer was subsequently blue screened for over an hour, with no sign or notice on the screen that something was happening, so I initially thought something was wrong, but let it go and it eventually came on and restarted.

    Anyway, it and the missing other updates must have been huge, because there seem to be 43 stages involved. Each time I shut down and restart it does just one. I am currently down to 21 stages to go. This in itself is peculiar ? I don't know.

    Anyway, the security / update shield in the taskbar has now got a green tick in it and is not going red, so that's a good thing.

    Windows 10 .. the worlds most handiest tool .. LOL .. I think WE are the tools. What a massive time waster!

    I NEVER have any such issues on my Linux desktop. It just keeps working perfectly .. always ...

    Assuming others have issues installing updates,

    Try running this command:
    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

    This fixed my Windows Updates recently.

    As I said in #13, updates are installing .. but slowly ..
    After 43 restarts, all now complete, all up to date.
    But what a hassle .. wow !
