Have you tried the two tips I've provided above?
If you did and from some reason it didn't solve the problem you might want to try and 'reverse' your Windows configuration to the Windows update which came before the current one that you're trying to update - via Windows System Restore, then restart Windows and try to update Windows once again - let me know if that solved the problem.
