Download and install this update manually.

Then reboot and try the updates again.

@tpdavd

 

Do you have Automatic up-dates enabled???

 

Try shutting down the computer and see if it wants to install updates.

 

If it does then you may have a conflict with Automatic up-dates and manual up-dates running at the same time.

 

Set Automatic up-dates to NEVER.
