Microsoft.net Framework will not update/install RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running Win 8.1 on a Lenovo U530 (factory specs).

    I can't update the microsoft.net framework to 4.5.2 or 4.6.1.

    I've tried a clean boot, the microsoft.net framework repair tool and windows update repair tool. The update repair tool fixed 3 issues and after doing so showed that there was no framework update for my pc. As soon as i began to manually download it however, i then got a popup saying there were updates (surprise surprise, it was .net framework finally coming to its senses). And of course it didn't mean squat, the update still fails. 

    On further attempts of various methods I did notice that the .net framework version 4.5.2 fails to install, while the 4.6.1 will "rollback" its installation, although this doesn't seem to have any effects ill or otherwise.
