Solved Windows Server 2012 R2 - Updates Failing
Anyone else having issues with server 2012 R2 updates? this is with a new install the there are about 96-98 updates It gets I think. It downloads and installs them upon reboot it fails to configure and gets stuck undoing the changes and never works again. I force reboot it after 6 hours or so but it doesn't help. It pretty much just kills the VM. I've tried multiple times with new installs. This is only installing the normal windows updates no optional stuff or things not checked by default. Any ideas? Should I try offline updates (http://download.wsusoffline.net/) or something?

Are there any new versions of software being installed at the same time?
You could try the .NET updates first and the malicious software removal pack last.

Install one at a time until you find the problem update.
It's apparently a sporadic issue with Server 2012 r2 or Windows 8.1 running on Hyper-V on Windows 8.1/Server 2k12 R2 with Generation 2 VMs and secure boot. Secure boot needs to be disable for some updates. All expect for 3 out of the 98 were failing. Odd thing is there are four other 2k12 r2 Gen 2 VMs on the host that had no issues with the windows updates. Disabled Secure boot on the VM and it worked fine.
