    I got some of those with this last patch Tuesday, and at least one the patch Tuesday before that. I'll likely find them all if I hunt though my list of installed updates. I just ran Windows update again this morning and no new updates. I uninstalled the optional update last night and ran Windows update again. It was listed again under optional last night but its gone now.

    Attachment 48958

    Failed, failed, failed, and also, failed.
    WOW that was even worse than mine!! Seems that MS should rework Windows Update more
    Not so bad as it looks. Only 2 failed updates(?).I have several on my computers.

    I have a score of them on a couple of computers. .
    I am just about to do a fresh install and work through the updates again. Something definitely awry here!

    Looks like MS did it AGAIN........" issues appear to be caused by kernel update KB2982791 and the optional update KB2975719" I got an email from MS this morning of a Re-release from Microsoft.

    I just uninstalled KB2975719 from my laptop, I wasn't having any issues but decided to uninstall it anyway. I ran windows update again and it says all up to date. Looks like they pulled KB2975719.

    Yeah but he/she tried lots of times without success, the same as I was getting with this August update!

    It would be really nice of them if they would tell us under which preconditions that update would fail or cause troubles.
    Also run in the problem of not being able to cleanup update files the usual way, there's nothing for that in cleanmanager.

    I still have mine. All mine succeeded. I must be one lucky dude!

    The page for it is still up: August 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2

    Expand the “List of the fixed issues”. Quite a lot.
