I had started the System Update utility this morning. It stated that it needed to be updated. It proceeded, threw up a dialog box stating that it had completed successfully...and then it disappeared. I cannot find it in the start menu, nor can Thinkvantage Tools find it. I have looked in the Program Files folders, and even in the Windows Programs and Features catalog. It's gone.
No problem, I said, I'll just re-install the old System Update. Well, when I did that, the same thing happened. Completed succesfully, but there is no trace of it anywhere.
What's going on here?
I have a X1 Carbon, 4th gen. running Windows 7.
Solved! Go to Solution.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Lenovo\System Update\tvsu.exe"
Right click this, create shortcut. It will offer to create the shortcut on the desktop.
If this folder is not found, locate:
and post tvsuSetup.log and setup log 2016-12-21#001.txt.

I experienced the same SU self update failure this morning.
Action 20:43:16: InstallSUService. InstallSUService
1: SU service installation failed, please retry the install.
InstallShield 20:43:16: CallScriptFunctionFromMsiCA() ends
CustomAction InstallSUService returned actual error code 1603 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)
Action ended 20:43:16: InstallSUService. Return value 3.
This failure is preventing reinstall of SU 5.7.0037.

The self update seems to have been pulled.

I ran into several issues getting 5.07.037 to install. These symptoms were experienced by other users in the past.
(1)Move 183 error concerning tvsuinstaller folder

This should correct the mess.
(1)reboot machine to avoid file in use/you dont have security rights
(2)locate c\programdata\lenovo\tvsuinstaller folder
Permissions misordered message.
Click edit. correct misorder.
(3)You can now delete this folder.
(4)Install SU 5.07.0037. Launch SU.
(5)Error message about deleting sessionSE folder.
(6)locate c\programdata\lenovo\SystemUpdate\sessionSE folder.

Do not delete this folder, leave as is.

SU self update was offered again today. It failed at a different failure point.

I rebooted my machine.
I then ran systemupdate507-2016-12-10.exe for the UTS download and install works!
The uts download folder is in c\programdata\lenovo UTS=update thy self.
The 5.07.0037 uninstall is leaving some files in the System Update folder.

Well, Lenovo released a new version of the TVSU that appears to be working:
