I've been fighting on and off for quite some time now to install a bunch of updates. Windows tells me they succeed, but when I go through the required restart I get a "Failure to configure updates" error, and the computer will reboot several times before finally bringing me back to the desktop, where I discover that none of the updates actually installed. sfc /scannow reports no integrity violations, and running the System Update Readiness Tool doesn't seem to help either (once it finally gets through the "Searching for updates" part of things, anyway).

 

If anyone might be able to offer any insights, I'd greatly appreciate it.

 Hello there, 
 
Have you launched "Windows Update troubleshooter" and see if the issue still persists? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Open-the-Windows-Update-troubleshooter
 
If the above method doesn't solve the issue then please see: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/949358
 
 

Hope this helps!

The issue is persisting after an in-place upgrade. I've run the Windows Update troubleshooter but it doesn't seem to do anything. Will try it again, though.

You might try running the SURT.

I should have been clearer in my original post: I've done all the steps in this article https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/949358 and am still having this problem even after an in-place upgrade. I've run the SURT several times, and updates still fail. Tried the Windows Update troubleshooter again, and though it said it corrected all errors it found the updates still failed. Every once in a while an update or two will succeed after several failures, but I've been seeing less and less of that lately.
