    Problems with Windows Update: Error 80004005


    Hey all,

    I'm having issues with updating windows 8 Pro for quite some time now.
    I cannot do system restore, as a lot have time has passed since this issue started and I don't have a valid restore point available.

    I am getting this error: 80004005 - google has not been very friendly for this one..

    I can see that its not just one that's failing:
    KB2871389
    KB2889784
    KB2883201

    I've attached the CBS log and a screenshot. I'm really not sure what I can do here, I tried working something from the logs, but couldn't figure out anything, would love your assistance.
    Formatting \ Repair are not an option as I want to keep my existing installed software (for the time being).

    Thanks in advance!


    Edit:
    Forgot to note that I:
    1) tried installing some of these updates manually, all failed
    2) tried removing the downloaded updates so they'll be redownloaded - it failed as well

As the title says upon checking for Updates I am getting Codes 801901F7 or 80072EE2 or 80072EFD which I believe is a problem with connecting with the MS server. Have ran the Troubleshooters, Reset, cleared the Cache, SFC and DISM, all reporting no problems. No connection problems either.
