For a month now my updates are failing and Windows reverts. I tried installing updates one at a time, but Windows

keeps trying to install all of the updates and fails. I currently have 17 failed updates and am ready to wipe Windows clean, reinstall and update from an Acronis backup. I don't want to take this step unless absollutely necessary.

Have you tried running

 

sfc /scannow at the CMD prompt as an administrator?

Keep us posted

I have the same identical problem

Windows update is about 64 updates and when I installed all of them my windows will not restart properly.

I have run the CMD and that does nothing to help.

 

I even ran internet in safe mode and with out internet in safe mode.

I have run chkdsk/f and sfc to no avail. The C drive looks ok. I can only assume that one or more Windows 8 files are corrupt.......I hate Windows 8, but hated 7 even more. Anyway, I think the only solution would be to reinstall Windows and also install my backup of the C drive.

I never argue with a person when they have the right idea. You might want to do a reformat of the drive inbetween so that you are starting with a known clean slate.
