The fix was to manually force the system to install the update.


  1. Verify that Windows Update has downloaded - but not installed - the update. These are two different things. In your File Explorer, enable Hidden items under View and go to


    Check if either or are present (Depending on which Windows type your have)

  2. Right-click on your Start button and choose Command Prompt (Admin). Paste and execute the following command corresponding to your Windows type

    Windows x86 (32-bit)

    dism /online /add-package /packagepath:C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\b0a5da1b24245bc4237166e09bae92da\

    Windows x64 (64-bit)

    dism /online /add-package /packagepath:C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\c4a1b8896ce9fbfea96c1ee6890d52a5\

  3. If you see the message The operation completed successfully. restart your system and you're done.
