I'm going to apply it anyway.
    I'm so glad you brought up ....4006. Mine said optional as well. I also went to that lengthy MS article and it stated "MS recommends to apply update". That article also said to install 2919355 update April 2014 first. I checked my installed updates and have the 3/18/2014 version of 2919355. I couldn't find the April update. What do I do.......did you install 2919355 April first and where did you find it? I'm a PIA, aren't I LOL.

    Oh, and something else, I had a nice message on my log-in screen today re security updates that had automatically been installed by Windows today and to restart computer. Strange, I don't have automatically installed feature activated I haven't restarted the laptop as yet. Did you get more updates today? The KB #s are: 2976978, 2972213, 2988948, 2894852, 2973114, 2987114, 2977629, 2894856. Again, thanks.

    Some updates need to be done by them selves, that may be why its unchecked. It's unchecked for me too on my laptop. It wasn't that update that was unchecked for me. I'm just doing the updates now, 22 in total. After a reboot i'll run Windows update again and see if its till listed, if it is I'll install it then. I can't remember if I installed that update on my desktop PC, there was 1 update unchecked. I'll have a look later on when I'm back on my desktop PC.
    Thank you alpha. I was so stressed out yesterday re these updates I was nearly in tears....I'm allowed....I'm a Senior Citizen. My husband didn't bug me the rest of the day.
    Thanks for the info. I'll do as you suggested and if it's still listed after rebooting I'll installed it. One more thing, I reviewed that lengthy article about these updates, and it contained prerequisite to download before doing the updates, did you do that or it's not necessary. Thanks so much.
    A lot of updates require previous updates or prerequisites. If they are not already there the update will not install. That can be one reason why some updates are unchecked. Another update in the list has to be installed first. I didn't do anything other than run Windows update and click install. I just ran it twice to apply all the updates is all.

    SUCCESS!!!! KB2975719, KB2989647 and KB2984005 installed with no problems. I'm not sure which one, but I think it was 2975719 that gave me a message re some problems, all I did was hit "retry" and it installed successfully. Also, the list of updates that were posted on my log-in screen (first time for that to happen) installed successfully.

    Thank you so much for your help. For future updates, I just have to remember to just install and if any problems, just hit "retry" LOL.

    You can't add to reputation in the News section, so that wasn't because of anything you did or didn't do. You also can't mark a thread as solved unless your the thread starter. Thanks anyway though.

    Just stumbled across this thread after having similar problems to a number of other users. I've tried installing KB2975719 both online (fails with the 80070002 error) and also by downloading the offline installer - this runs, but at the end it says the update was not installed. I'm on 8.1 Pro 64-bit. Never had any issues with updates until this one. Can anyone suggest what to try? Cheers, Mike.

    Hi there. Did you omit or uninstall any updates last month?

    Some updates have to be installed in a particular order. Some are prerequisites for another.

    If not Defender, try turning off your antivirus temporarily to install the updates.
