updates fail to install April KB3147458 and May KB3156421 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    the latest updates fail to install. the install progresses up to a point (>90%) and then stops with a failure and revert message. 

    April 12, 2016 — KB3147458 (OS Build 10586.218)
    May 10, 2016 — KB3156421 (OS Build 10586.318)

    I am sure this has been asked elsewhere but there are no straightforward answers given and I thought only the April one would be a problem. now the may update also behaves the same way.

    what do I need to do (aside from a fresh install)?

    thank you
