The solution to this problem is to hide the update. You can always use the Restore Hidden Updates option (in the left pane of the Windows Update window) if you later decide to restore and install the hidden update.
From Windows Update window click the link indicating that updates are available.

What do you do when KB3035583 will not uninstall in Windows 7 using the above method or via the command line or using DISM?  I have the same problem with KBs 3080149, 3021917, 3022345, 3068708, 2670838, and 2952664!  Also, when I go to Windows Update the first window I see says "Windows 10 couldn't be installed" with Error 800ffff.  Then, when I click on "Search for Updates" within a few seconds I get a yellow window that says "Restart your computer to install important updates" even after I've restarted my computer a few times.
