Have you queried MS website? If not, have you tried this:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/949358/-failure-configuring-windows-updates--reverting-changes--error-when-yo

There are some other options available, if you dig a little deeper.

When used the Windows Update Troubleshooter I wasn't completely sure which one to select Windows Update or Background Intelligent Transfer Service? I guessing Windows Update but I'm not sure.

I ran into an issue with the Windows Update Troubleshooters Background Intelligent Transfer Service, it says problems installing recent updates (not fixed).

 

Also about the Automatically reset Windows Update components do skip steps 6, 7, 8 & 9? Because it says I should skip step 4. One other thing aren't the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB947821) and System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 (KB947821) the same thing? And what do I install? Platform update for Windows 7?

@ FreeBooter

 

Well I tried the programs & Automatically reset Windows Update components like you told me to and no luck. :(

I don't know if I did something wrong? I reset Windows after each procedure. Maybe that's what I did wrong? :scratchhead:

Either way I really hate M$ sometimes these Rollup updates seem to be problem.

BTW I dual boot with Linux one HDD for Windows and the other for Linux.

Even this failed although when I ran your .bat file I had the Comodo FW enabled (I forgot to disable it) so ran it a second time and this it asked me if wanted to reboot and I did. Then I tried to update Windows (rollup update) and it fail after rebooting the system.

If you prefer to use a different Web browser, you can get updates from the Microsoft Download Center.

I tried that with Internet Explorer and it tells me that it wants to run a Windows Vista add-on. But I don't Windows Vista.
