 Please note, depending upon the failure reason, the solution mentioned may or may not work.

Another possible solution lies in a known issue with a couple of Windows updates

 

The solution for this would be to:

 

1. Go to services - search>services.msc and

 

2. Disable the Nalperion Licensing Service -

 

3. Reboot and then rerun Windows Update - the updates should then work.

 

Once the updates have been applied you can then re-enable Nalperion - see this post on full solution: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Windows-8-Knowledge-Base/Failure-configuring-Windows-Updates-Windows-8/t...
