Hi DSperber,
thanks for the support, I honestly didn't have any problems updating KB4586876, I was able to install it without problems.

Firstly I would install Lenovo System Update and try that update mechanism first.

 

To clean up Lenovo Vantage you sometimes need to uninstall the application, go to device manager and uninstall "System Interface foundation V2" driver, reboot and then reinstall Lenovo vantage.

 

I would also line up the two thunderbolt firmware and software updates manually if they cause BSOD.

@Mauirinho, As we check your logs, all the latest update in system update server are updated. Some of the failed installation history are only history information. It only indicated some installation failed on that time, there may be some newer package to be installed .

As said by freddellmeister I wanted to update Thunderbolt but I found that not only can I not update these two software / firmware:

  • Intel Thunderbolt software 17.3.74.400 03 Mar 2020 3.2 MB
  • Intel Alpine Ridge Thunderbolt Firmware for Windows 10 (64-bit), 8.1 (64-bit), 7 (64-bit) - ThinkPad P70

but they are not even visible in my device management, I attach photos below.
Things are getting more and more complicated, many drivers are out of date, some I am updating by hand and others I cannot update.

First of all it is normal that the thunderbolt device is not visible in device manager unless a thunderbolt peripheral attached.

Secondly:

https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/n1dtf04w.txt

      1.Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Thunderbolt Software.
      2.Execute Thunderbolt Software.exe
      3.Left-Click thunderbolt icon located the the buttom-right corner.
      4.Select "About".
       Details pop up like above:


If you already have FW 25 installed then the firmware update is not required.
