I recent completed a facory reset of my G580 and managed to install a few updates; but after that it says theres 101 updates and it will download them but after the restart it says fails to install, reverting changes.
I've tried running the windows troubleshooter which does find faults and fixes them but it makes no difference.
Thanks in advance.

I was having the same issue for the past one week. Make sure you are logged in to a microsoft account(not a local account) and then apply the fix , the windows update diagnostics , and then download and install updates. Some of the updates require administrator permission(microsoft account).
Download the windows update diagnostics tool from here : Windows Diagnostics Tool

can you list here what are the updates that failed? In my case all security updates and .NET framework updates kept failing. I asked around and they told me that after I have installed the updated I should check the updates history and if I find some of them failed , I should run the troubleshooter again . I ran the troubleshooter again , and it worked . It literally took me 2-3 weeks to finally update. There is sometheing really wrong with windows updates and the only way to fix this problem is the solution I told you in last reply.
This was the question I asked on microsoft community : windows updates.
If you still can't find the right solution , then you can ask your queries there also.

there are some hidden updates too , especially Visual C++ updates that won't show in Update Diagnostics tool. You have to download Belarc Security Advisor , and it shows all the hidden updates , so you can install the all the updates that are failing and that are hidden. My problem was solved this way.
Note: If you have java installed , uninstall it , all third party softwares that require updates won't show in Windows updates , and it is very difficult to update them. In my case Java and Visuall C++ were the culprit. I uninstalled Java and then updated Visual C++.
