This is a message that could piss off the Pope.  I'm reloading computers and doing massive amounts of updates, as many as 210 at a time, and sometimes I get this message.  And it doesn't take out just the defective update, it takes out ALL the updates done in that session!

 

Is there a way to fix this problem or minimize the amount of time wasted on it?

 

I always run the Microsoft 50123 fixit before updating.  Sometimes it helps and sometimes it doesn't.

 

What causes this enormous time-waster?

Try running the system readiness tool before the updates. It's a kludge but you could run approx 20 updates at a time. That way the most it could take out would be 20.
