Here's the same thing with links FWIW:

 

Install  .NET update NDP461-KB3102436-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU

In an elevated command window turn off the update service:  net stop wuauserv

rename the folder C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution to …OLD

With the update service still off, install this update to the update client:  KB3138612

turn the update service back on: net start wuauserv

Install the following KBs in order, rebooting after each install.  It may be necessary to turn off the update service while doing this to keep it from hanging on “checking…”.  The update service is typically on a delayed start so it may or may not be necessary to turn it off for each install.

KB3145739
KB3153199
KB3161664
KB3020369
KB3172605

That last KB is the July roll-up.  It may be superseded by later roll-ups, and there should be an indication of that on the KB’s page.

Works perfectly. Do you know the reason for this problem?

Excellent Smiley Happy

 

I can't say with certainty what is wrong.  It is happening across a range of machines with varying update status.

 

Thanks to my neighbor for this fix.  He came by it the hard way.

I haven't compiled one.  If you use those links and access the KB articles they refer to there are probably 32 bit versions.
