"Failed to configure updates. Reverting Changes." loop!

  1. #1

    "Failed to configure updates. Reverting Changes." loop!

    So I restored my system because I had no other choice from it not booting before and it was working for a day, then when I restarted it said 'installing XX / 93 updates' so I let that run, and when It finally finished, it restarted said 'configuring windows updates XX% complete...' and then it suddenly said "Failed to configure updates. Reverting Changes." and then it looped this by restarting, trying to configure them, and then saying "Failed to configure updates. Reverting Changes." again...

    I've got back into safe mode, what should I do to make it update properly again?

    P.S Someone suggested toggling "Secure Boot" in the BIOS, is that worth a try?
