P70 - Lenovo Vantage - (certain) Lenovo System Updates repeatedly failing

Hey all ... here is a screenshot of the current state of affairs:

 

1504PDT29OCT18 screenshot (Serial Number redacted).jpg

Note: this is the Win 10 Pro 64-bit OS, Version 1803 ... Windows Update is ' ... up to date'.

 

I have tried various Lenovo Vantage Critical / Recommended / Optional update selections (in their respective groups and / or alone) and re-booted every time following failed system updates ... I cannot seem to break whatever log jam is occurring here.

 

I thought perhaps trying the IME 11.6 Firmware - 10 [64] - V.11.8.55.3510 update alone, or, the ThinkPad BIOS Update - 10 [64] - V.2.26.1.18 update alone (they are both 'Reboot Required' updates) might get me past this issue, however, so far, no joy.  There is a 'Fully charged (100%)' battery installed in the system.

 

Thanks for any insights offered, FFF

 

P.S.  I would also be interested to find a Lenovo drivers list of older Synaptics Pointing Device (ThinkPad UltraNav / Touchpad) drivers for my P70 machine ... does such a historical driver resource exist?  The reason being, the more recent touchpad drivers are unsuitable for me ... too sensitive / 'sticky' (adjustment of various touchpad settings doesn't cure the usability issues) ... I much preferred the behaviours of the earlier drivers but can now only Roll Back to Driver Version: 19.3.4.202 (16-Jan-18) ... I'd much rather use the July 2017 driver version, whatever the version number was (possibly 19.3.4.112).

 ... sorted this issue out myself by manually 'Update'ing Driver's (from Device Manager) for the 'Synaptics Pointing Device' (Synaptics ThinkPad UltraNav Driver), and, on a slightly later occasion / reboot cycle, for the 'Realtek PCIE CardReader' (Realtek MultiCard Driver) ... all of the other Installation History-listed, previously failed updates eventually installed properly by way of Lenovo Vantage - System Update.
