    Sorry, but glad to read this, John.
    Total disaster for me. I have never had the problems with updates that many users seem to have, This time - " rolling back, unable to finish install". Restarted, offered the updates again - same story.
    Not sure where to go from here but I think I will put back one of my older images and retry.

    P.S. OK. Problem solved. It was a question of trying to mix cumulative updates with regular updates. I should have left the cumulative update alone (or vice versa - left the separate ones alone)
    I loaded an earlier image and tried again, but only with the update notification, not the premature ones posted.

    One of the advantages noticed is that the pages load quickly( without the blank screen)

    Everything went just fine for me.
    Optional KB2975719 seems to be quite extensive rollup

    Installed fine here too... NB: I always use the separately downloaded MSU file (for these large ones, anyway)...

    Don't see anything that really grabs me - tested the double-tap 'n drag... works fine - side-swipe still brings up the charms *sigh* (I do, however, blame the synaptics driver for that, as it doesn't appear in a VM.)

    I had already backed up disc image before downloading the update, have to try it soon or do a restore.

    Note: now when i shut down lap totally & plug in lap with battery to AC supply, power led shows as it's charging.

    But, I have not found any problem with power led even while system was on - the battery is not charging that's all, with no errors in the battery icon in system tray nor any abnormal changes in power led.

    It's just that- everything showing up is normal but the lap is not getting charged.

    Hi all, 1st time poster but long time viewer of the site.

    I have been having problems with this update since it's release yesterday. All of 6 of my desktops/ laptops have the exact same issue when attempting to install the update:

    Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x80070002: Update for Windows 8.1 for x64-based Systems (KB2975719).

    After carrying out various troubleshooting steps (including downloading the KB directly from Microsoft rather than Windows Update), I was initially of the opinion that it was a problem with the KB itself however I created a VM with Windows 8.1 and have since discovered that carrying out a clean Installation of Windows 8.1 and then installing both previously released and newly released updates, the KB2975719 update will install without any problems.

    All of my PC's are configured identically with the only changes being the removal of all the pre-installed metro apps (no use for these) alongside the removal of the following Windows features:

    - Media Features/ Windows Media Player
    - Print and Document Services/ Internet Printing Client & Windows Fax and Scan
    - Windows location Provider
    - Work Folders Client
    - XPS Services
    - XPS Viewer

    Aside from these changes, Windows 8.1 remains unchanged.

    On a side note, the PC's that are having the problem only had Windows 8.1 installed 3 days ago with the only additional software being Office 2013 and VMware Workstation (at this time).

    All other updates from yesterdays and previous releases install fine so I am a bit puzzled as to what exactly could be missing to prevent this update from installing. Microsoft state that as a pre-req update 2919355 must also be installed - which it is. There must be further pre-req's that Microsoft have missed (in my opinion) that is causing this update to fail.

    I would really appreciate any advice or suggestions in resolving this. Microsoft Support levels 1 and 2 techs have not had any luck yet.

    That KB addresses some of the stuff you have "removed" (how did you do that), Media Features/ Windows Media Player is one I'm sure of. You should check at MS what that update does. I found out long time ago that less system is modified, less chance of something going wrong with updates.
