Windows Update trying to install KB2976627, continually receiving error that I do not have enough disk space remaining to install the update. My OS Drive has 75 GB Remaining. Does anybody have any idea what causes this problem and how to remedy it?

It is often the VSS service that produces that error. How big is your shadowstorage. You can find out with this command:

vssadmin list shadowstorage

I ran that command and this is the response I got:

Used Shadow Copy Storage space: 399 MB (0%)
Allocated Shadow Copy Storage space: 704 MB (0%)
Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space: 9.30 GB (5%)

it appears there should be plenty of this shadow copy storage space available.
