    Update(s) did not install

    My computer rebooted and I got the message that it was installing updates. However, when it finally came back online, I checked my update history and the message was "Update Failed To Install". There were 4, but they all said the same thing. "SECURITY UPDATE FOR INTERNET EXPLORER FLASH PLAYER". All were KB3132372. Was this only 1 update that failed 4 times or just 1 update? Can I install it manually or will it update automatically later? There was Microsoft link at the bottom of the message, but when I clicked on it, nothing happened.

    Update(s) did not install

    Since I don't ever use IE, is it even necessary to have this update? I use Firefox and have IE deactivated (or whatever it's called...tried to uninstall but got the message that I could reset so it would not be active...don't remember what it's called). I see that several people have had issues with updates failing to install and they haven't received any replies either. I did get a Windows Defender Security update today, so I assume that maybe the update failed to install because IE is not active. If I don't get a reply, I'm not going to worry about it. :)
